This is coolbert:

Again from the Russian controlled [?] Internet web site

The Ukraine Conflict the Afghan connection.

"Moscow warns about abandoned US military aircraft"

 16 Aug, 2022. 

"Dozens of aircraft were taken to neighboring countries after the fall of Kabul last year"

"Military aircraft flown out of Afghanistan by fleeing US-backed troops after the Taliban retook the country last year could now slip into Ukraine, Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s presidential envoy to Afghanistan, has warned."

Planes as flown by American trained Afghan pilots fleeing the Taliban.

"Russian news agency RIA Novosti asked Kabulov on Tuesday to comment on the fate of the Russian-made Mi-17 helicopters that the US originally purchased for the Afghan Armed Forces in the 2010s but ended up delivering to Ukraine in the spring in order to fight Russia."

According to my recollection these Afghan air force warplanes flown to neighboring nations with pilots requesting asylum. Nations on the receiving end of Afghan aircraft to include Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, maybe Kazakhstan. Planes not returned to the Taliban have been dispersed in some manner to include a Russian Mi-17 sold to the Ukrainian?

Any nation having it's own weapons used against it extremely galling.
