Is The EU Acting According To Its Values And Fundamental Principles In Front Of The Afghan People?
No one of us could imagine that in 2021 a terrorist group could take over an entirely Country.

Afghans and all the citizens who lived there were desperate to flee from an uncertain future, fearing their lives and rights.
They fear revenge attacks by the Taliban against those who worked with the U.S. or the government or from the reimpose of the harsh rules and law that they relied on when they ran Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001.
