Why is Russia afraid of the rise of Taliban?
Russia has started fearing the re-establishment of Islamic terrorism in Afghanistan with the Taliban coming to power. Russia knows very well that if terrorism strikes again in Afghanistan, then the whole world will be in its grip. Russia is also no exception to this Islamic terrorism. Despite being a superpower, Russia has faced the brunt of terrorism for many decades. During this, not only hundreds of soldiers of the Russian army were sacrificed to terrorism, but common people also suffered loss of life and property.

Islamic terrorists may raise their heads again in Chechnya
Since 2003, there has been peace in Chechnya, an autonomous region of Russia. But Russia fears that the Taliban’s victory in Afghanistan has sparked a renewed enthusiasm among the militants. Even in social media, the supporters of terrorism are describing armed revolution against the government as the most suitable weapon of victory. In such a situation, if Chechnya’s rebels start attacks again, it may be difficult for Russia to stop it. Since, thousands of people from Chechnya are also included in the Taliban fighters. In such a situation, after getting victory in Afghanistan, these terrorists can return to their country. After their return, the fire of rebellion in Chechnya, which seems calm from above, may once again spread.
