The Russian Embassy is located on Dar-ul-Aman Street in Kabul. It has continued to work after power in the country passed to the Taliban last year. At the same time, most Western countries evacuated their diplomats from the country.
The Taliban guaranteed the security of the Russian embassy, and the Russian Foreign Ministry said that they were not going to evacuate the diplomats.
Russia, like Western countries, does not officially recognize the Taliban government. This requires the creation of an inclusive government and respect for human rights in Afghanistan, said Zamir Kabulov, Special Representative of the Russian President for Afghanistan. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that there is no talk of recognizing the Taliban now.
