Against the background of the withdrawal of the American contingent, the Taliban launched an offensive and captured all major cities, declaring the end of the twenty-year war. Now the question of the mechanism of state governance is being resolved. As a source close to the new authorities told, this will be a council of 12 people.
The only hotbed of resistance to the Taliban remains the Panjshir province, where the troops led by Ahmad Massoud are located.
The evacuation of foreigners and local residents who cooperated with them continues through the airport of the Afghan capital. In the early days, due to the crush, panic and warning fire, several people died, some crashed, having fallen from aircraft that had already taken off.
