Afghanistan is suffering from the activity of Taliban, a militant group formed in the 1990s, seeking to establish a strict Sharia law in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The crisis in the country prompted the emergence of local cells of other extremist organizations such as the ISIS terrorist group, which is outlawed in Russia and numerous other countries.
