    I familiar with article but it doesn't actually implicate the Russia government.

    These accusations are brand new and have nothing to do with drugs...

    I wouldn't say the title is misleading. It may not be accurate but newspaper headlines aren't known for their nuances. Looks like the general was being careful not to explicitly state that the Russian government is arming the Taliban while at the same time making it pretty clear what his opinion is.

    Google'ing it there are quite few articles in various sources (most dating back to April) with a few more cautious claims in March.

    From a quick scan of the articles I suspect there is a fair amount of evidence but the hope is still to resolve it via back channel diplomacy.
