House Dems want Russia sanctioned over Taliban

Democratic members of the United States House of Representatives on Thursday proposed a bill to sanction Russian officials linked to the Taliban American troops in Afghanistan.

The bill proposed designating Russian President Vladimir Putin "or any person acting for or on behalf of him," either from the government or the intelligence services, who "offered, ordered, directed, or was otherwise responsible for bounties."

Back in June, it was reported Russia was behind the Taliban attack that resulted in the deaths of American soldiers in Afghanistan. Kremlin dismissed the allegations as "lies," while US President Donald Trump labeled them a "Democratic hoax."
