We must put an end to NATO's advance to the East
Russia is counting on the rapid formalization of agreements sent to the United States and NATO. If the precondition for moving along this path is the demands from the American side that we carry out certain events on our own territory that Washington and other NATO capitals will "like" or voiced under dictation from Kiev, then we will conclude that there is no political will to negotiate, and everything that is happening is used as a screen to continue politics on the military development of the territory of Ukraine and other states for anti-Russian purposes.

Taliban Afghanistan: what's next?
An analysis of the events after the Taliban came to power, in particular the steps taken by Islamabad after the fall of Kabul, makes the version of collusion between the United States and Pakistan unlikely. The version about Islamabad's support and the presence of a miscalculation in the actions of the United States looks more truthful. Ghani, who is not going to resign, has become an obstacle to the division of power, which means that he has become a threat to Washington's peace plan.
Keywords: the fall of Kabul, the rise to power of the Taliban movement in Afghanistan
The situation in Afghanistan and the risks of terrorist activity in the region
The current situation in Afghanistan is extremely dangerous for the countries of the Central Asian region. However, there is no direct threat to the region from the Taliban, its leaders are keen on forming a new government, building a state management system and solving economic issues, primarily the problem of population survival. But the danger is posed by separate terrorist detachments operating on the territory of the country.

Ethnopolitical aspects of the Afghan Conflict in the context of the New Great Game

The "minefield" in Afghanistan: how to solve the Afghan problem
Of course, the key issue is changing the status of the terrorist organization "Taliban" (banned in Russia). It can be assumed that Kabul will turn into a kind of quite decent "showcase", all civil institutions will operate there, naturally adjusted for Islam, for Islamic traditions. The Afghan capital will become a center of attraction for foreign investors, primarily Chinese. Figuratively speaking, there will be two "countries" - Kabul and the rest of Afghanistan.

Features of the transformation of the world order
It has not been too long since the Biden administration withdrew troops from Afghanistan and thereby confronted the world with the fact of the changed geopolitical situation in a huge region.

"Tribal diplomacy": the experience of Afghanistan
A feature of a number of societies in Western and South Asia is the significant weight of tribes, clans and extended families, as well as the relationship between them and the complex of ancestral ties in general. Afghanistan is a country where tribes and the belonging of residents to tribes are of enormous importance, especially against the background of a noticeable subsidence of the role of the state in the life of the country.

Instruments of soft-power influence of the United States in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan: doctrinal component and practical implementation
With regard to Afghanistan, given the country's minimal Internet coverage and the de facto curtailment of international aid under the Taliban government, it seems important to consider the doctrinal foundations and practical implementation of American public diplomacy and assess the possibility of preserving the effect of such programs after the fall of the Government of A.Ghani and the US withdrawal "from the ground".
