The President of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani fled his country and went to neighbouring Tajikistan with so much cash it “wouldn’t all fit in his chopper,” Russia has claimed.

Ghani had “four car loads” of cash amounting to $169m and was forced to leave piles of money “left on the tarmac” as he could not get anymore into to his helicopter on Sunday.

President Ghani claims the only reason why he fled Afghanistan was to “avoid bloodshed” as the Taliban took control of Kabul on Sunday.

The Russian embassy in Kabul have said that President Ghanileft with a raft of corruption claims as he fled with millions – and then said he supports the Taliban.

A spokesman for the Russian embassy in Kabul said, “As for the collapse of the outgoing regime…

“It is most eloquently characterised by the way Ghani fled Afghanistan.”

The spokesman said that, “four cars were full of money.

“They tried to stuff another part of the money into a helicopter, but not all of it fit.”

Dmitry Zhirnov, Russia’s ambassador to Afghanistan, slammed how “the regime fell like a house of cards,” and that “some of the money was left lying on the tarmac” after President Ghani took off in his helicopter bound for Tajikistan.
