Rumors of the president’s whereabouts have been circulating since Ghani’s abrupt departure over the weekend. According to the Russian embassy in Kabul, the head of state tried to flee with so much cash that it did not fit in his helicopter and part of it had to be left behind at the airport.
Ghani left Afghanistan as the Taliban approached the capital. It is not clear which way he traveled to the United Arab Emirates or when he got there.
