Afghan president Ashraf Ghani fled Kabul in cars stuff with money, it is claimed

Afghanistan’s president Ashraf Ghani fled his country with four cars and a helicopter “stuffed with cash”, it is claimed.

Mr Ghani slipped out of Kabul as the Taliban swept in.

Nikita Ishchenko, a Russian Embassy spokesman in the capital is reported saying:


“The collapse of the regime…is most eloquently characterised by how Ghani escaped from Afghanistan: four cars were filled with money.

“They tried to shove more into a helicopter, but not everything would fit.

“Some of the money was left lying on the tarmac.”

When asked how the details were known Mr Ishchenko replied:

“Well, we are working here.”

It’s said the fleeing president went to either neighbouring Tajikistan or Uzbekistan.

Russian sources claim he is now in exile in Oman.

Mr Ghani said he left the Presidential Palace to “prevent a flood of bloodshed”.
