According to the publication, we are talking about the death of three US Marines in April 2019 during a car explosion in Afghanistan. The US intelligence service considered the version of the connection between their death and Russia’s willingness to provide cash rewards to the Taliban.   These assumptions were included in the summary that the intelligence agencies daily compile for the country’s president  Donald Trump . According to sources, these data were sent to the head of state in late February. It is noted that the American leader may have missed the information, because he does not always read the summary, sometimes preferring a brief retelling of key points.   At the beginning of May, a number of US intelligence agencies got acquainted with this information, between which  there were  disagreements over the presented version. Doubts about the reliability, in particular, were expressed by representatives of the  US National Security Agency .   On June 26, The New York Times, citing US intelligence , reported  that Russian military intelligence had secretly offered to pay for the killing of US troops.
