Russia to facilitate Italy’s Afghanistan pullout

Russia to facilitate Italy’s Afghanistan pullout

President Putin has tabled a bill to ratify an agreement with Italy which would allow that country to use Russian rail roads for removing Italian forces from Afghanistan.

Italian service personnel would be allowed to briefly leave their carriages, but only if unarmed.

The agreement contains clauses for Russia to discontinue the transit on security grounds.
