Afghanistan has long been suffering from an unstable security situation. The government has been fighting the Taliban* for almost two decades, and the Daesh* terrorist group, which has been operating in Afghanistan since 2015.
*Taliban, Daesh (ISIS, ISIL, IS, Islamic State) are terrorist groups banned in Russia and many other countries.
