Taliban fighters have claimed that Russia is supplying them with weapons including snipers and heavy machine guns.

America’s top general in Afghanistan said earlier this year that he was ‘not refuting’ reports Moscow was providing support, including weapons, to the militant group.

Kremlin chiefs have previously denied trading with the Taliban. But new footage, obtained by CNN, appears to show fighters in possession of improved weaponry which the militants claim was supplied by Russian government sources.

Moscow has been critical of the United States over its handling of the war in Afghanistan, where the Soviet Union fought a bloody and disastrous war of its own in the 1980s.

America in the 1980s supplied the Mujahideen, parts of which ultimately became the Taliban, with high-tech weapons as they battled the Soviet Union.
