The US Department of Defense says that Russia does not do enough to fight terrorism on its own territory.

“The US and many in the (Central Asian) region are concerned about the radicalization taking place in Russia. Russia criticizes the countries that help Afghanistan in the fight against terrorism, but does not do enough to address the problem of radicalization and recruitment of terrorists within its borders,” Pentagon Spokesperson Lieutenant Col Kon Faulkner said in reference to the information on the large number of immigrants from Russia and CIS countries in the ranks of terrorist groups, including in Afghanistan.

Faulkner refused to talk about the total number of militants of the “Islamic State” (ISIS) in Afghanistan and stressed that the US will continue to work with its Afghan partners to reduce the presence of ISIS in Afghanistan after the support of terrorists from Iraq and Syria is weakened.

Earlier in May, Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov, speaking in Dushanbe, said that Afghanistan was turning into a base for international terrorism.

According to him, in Afghanistan there are from 4,000-10,000 active ISIS terrorists, with almost half of them are concentrated in the northern border of the country.

US government puppets (witch strings are pulled from Tel Aviv) really believe all humans are retarded just like them. You really have NOT to have any brain to realize since 1980-ish (when USA supported and armed the Mujaheddines in Afghanistan) until present time USA creates, funds, arms, support and aim terrorism just as pretext on the other side to “fight” it and legally invade any country in this Holly World…

I hate to say this but the Pentagon is right. Russia did not attack Israel while knowing that the source of all problems is coming from there.
So Yes Russia is not doing enough.

The game of blame-shifting is played here by the Pentagon , whose goons , ISIS , are actively recruiting in this period among the alienated misfitting individuals in Central Asia. All the blame goes to Russia. Accuse the opponent of what you are planning , that’s an old tested Nazi concept.
