    Pentagon says 'no corroborating' evidence to stand up NYT report on Russian bounties

    The Defense Department said late Monday that there is “no corroborating evidence” to support the explosive New York Times report last week that said the Russian military offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

    “The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in malign activity against United States and coalition forces in Afghanistan,” Jonathan Hoffman, the chief Pentagon spokesman, said in a statement. “To date, DOD has no corroborating evidence to validate the recent allegations found in open-source reports.”

    “Regardless, we always take the safety and security of our forces in Afghanistan — and around the world — most seriously and therefore continuously adopt measures to prevent harm from potential threats,” he added.
