A Russian Mi-8MTV plane was looted at Kabul airport .

This was reported by Baza .

Court documents, fire extinguishers, emergency ax, bulletproof vests, oxygen masks, portable radio, etc. disappeared from the Mi-8. The headrest of the flight attendant’s seat was also stolen from the Russians.

According to Dozhd , citing the carrier’s press service, “unidentified persons” boarded the plane, where they opened a container with on-board rescue equipment, which contained tools and a supply of food.

Since 1991, UTair has been a UN contractor for the delivery of humanitarian goods by helicopter. Since 2001 – the largest provider of air transport services.

The day before, the airline received permission to fly to Kabul from Russia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Afghanistan, taking out more than 200 UN workers.

Seizure of power in Afghanistan by the Taliban and evacuation from the country

With the withdrawal of US and NATO troops from Afghanistan, the radical Taliban movement quickly began to seize cities in the country. After the Taliban entered Kabul, thousands of people tried to leave the Afghan capital.

Ukraine initially  evacuated  79 citizens from six countries – Ukraine, Afghanistan, Belarus, the Netherlands, Croatia and Tajikistan. Subsequently, a second Ukrainian plane took off from Afghanistan  .

After the third evacuation flight , according to the Foreign Ministry spokesman, about 50 Ukrainians remained in Afghanistan .

It has been reported that the Taliban will ban the evacuation of foreign nationals from Kabul after August 31, and also demand that the evacuation mission of foreign troops from Afghanistan be completed by August 31, as previously promised by Joe Biden.
