Russia said that it will not take part "in the inauguration event for the new government of Afghanistan if it is held on the 9/11 anniversary", media said on September 10, 2021; After Russia said that, the event was moved to another day.[4]

There are worries about the Freedom of the press: "at least 14 journalists" were arrested "and then released" (or set free) over a two-day period; Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said that, and media told about that on September 10, 2021.[5]
