A devastating earthquake hit Afghanistan. The death toll exceeded 1,000 and at least 1,500 were injured. The press secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, during a conversation with journalists, said that our departments are closely monitoring the humanitarian situation in Afghanistan after the death of so many people.
“We will continue to see how the situation develops,” Peskov said.
At the same time, the Kremlin spokesman noted that he did not know whether the Afghan authorities asked the Ministry of Emergency Situations or the Russian Foreign Ministry for help, reports RIA Novosti.
Earlier it was reported that the most severe damage was recorded in provinces bordering Pakistan in the southeast and east of the country, with some settlements completely destroyed.
