   “As part of its assistance to Bangui in strengthening the defense capabilities of the Central African Republic, Russia promptly responded to the request of its leadership and sent an additional 300 instructors to train the military personnel of the national army. The corresponding notification was sent by the Russian side to the UN Security Council Committee 2127 on sanctions against the Central African Republic, ”the diplomatic agency said.

 

   Interesting, does those numbers include PMC:

A brief (hopefully) bit deadly conflict errupted between Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. There are dozens of ddead confirmed (31 dead including civilians on Kyrgyz side alone). It seems that just like with the Chinese-Indian conflict the core of the dispute is control of water sources.

Taliban captured 9th provincial capital (Fayzabad) and also two military airports (Kunduz and Sheberghan) with plenty of machinery including several (some possibly working) helicopters, among them at least one Mi-24V (ex-Belarus, ex-India). There are rumors some pilot(s) defected. 

 

Several other major cities are being fought for (Laskar Gah, Kandahar, Ghazni, Mazar-i-Sharif, Herat)

Taliban defeated Rashid Dostum and Ata Noor forces in Mazar i Sharif and the remains of their forces are trying to flee into Uzbekistan.  

 

This is only today. With this speed the ANA will cease to exist in matter of days and Kabul will be the last government controlled territory already next week... 

 

Taliban AF in action

   Looks like it is done. Yuri Lyamin on Talibs assault on Panjshir:

Quote

   During the assault, Talibans entered Bazarak - the administrative center of Panjshir, it is reported that the press secretary of the Resistance - Fahim Dashti, who frequently wrote about allegedly hundreds and thousands of killed and captured Taliban members, was killed as well as several commanders of the local militia and the remnants of the retreating Afghan military. Among them is the deputy and close relative of Ahmad Masoud Jr. - General Abdul Wadood Zara.
   P. S. It seems that almost all the commanders and leaders of the Panjshir Resistance were killed, only the fate of Ahmad Masud Jr. himself and Vice President Amrullah Saleh is unknown.
