To date, over nine thousand people have been evacuated from the Afghan capital, Kabul.

Bundeswehr planes alone took more than 1,640 people out of the city. On the night of August 20, a German A400M aircraft landed in the capital of Uzbekistan, Tashkent, taking 184 people from Afghanistan. Before that, another Bundeswehr plane arrived in Tashkent, with 181 evacuees on board. At the Kabul airport, thousands of people continue to wait for evacuation to leave the Taliban * occupied country.

Now Berlin will send two helicopters to evacuate residents of the country's hard-to-reach areas.

The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that the country can take refugees from Afghanistan "to any country".

* - the Taliban movement is recognized as terrorist and is prohibited on the territory of Russia
