By the way, talks about the possible official recognition of the Taliban by Russia have appeared long ago.

For example, in September 2021, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that it would be impossible to get away from dialogue with the Taliban. “We will inevitably have to talk with them,” the Foreign Minister pointed out. And already in October, talks on Afghanistan were held in Moscow with the participation of members of the terrorist movement.

Sergey Lavrov also recently said that “the time has come to mobilize the resources of the world community to provide Kabul with effective financial, economic and humanitarian assistance.” According to him, the fact that the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan imposes on them “a great responsibility.” “We note their efforts to stabilize the military-political situation, to improve the activities of the state apparatus,” Lavrov said.

Simultaneously with this statement, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia is moving towards ceasing to consider the Taliban terrorists, despite the fact that a week ago the head of state urged not to rush to such decisions.

Now, according to Putin, the decision to exclude the Taliban from the number of terrorist movements should be made at the UN level. “We stand in solidarity (with the common decisions on the Taliban) and will make a decision to exclude them from this terrorist list, from the list of terrorist organizations,” he said, adding that “it seems to me that we are approaching this”.

Meanwhile, despite the refusal of the official state media from labeling the Taliban as an organization recognized as terrorist and banned in the Russian Federation, the absence of this indication in other media is still punishable by fines. So, IA “Rosbalt” recently received three relevant decisions from Roskomnadzor (RKN), in the near future they will be considered in court and the editorial office faces a large fine. Let’s hope that the judge will take into account the changed (and for a long time, taking into account the visits of high-ranking Taliban delegations to Moscow in recent months) attitude of the state towards this organization when considering the decisions of the RKN.

* “Taliban” – recognized as terrorist in Russia and prohibited.
