Russian government has cautioned of the risk of a civil war in Afghanistan, but said that it does not intend to intervene.
Press Secretary for the President of Russia, Dmitry Peskov stated this on Monday, adding that potentially, there is a risk of a renewed civil war in Afghanistan.
“Of course, no one intends to intervene in these events,” Peskov said.
