Julia MEADOW, “FACTS”
Libya called on the US and the EU to impose restrictive measures against the Russian PMC “Wagner”, to punish the militants behind the capture of the largest oil fields in the country, “Al-Sharara”. Recall that in may it became known about the transfer to Libya of up to 1200 mercenaries PMC “Wagner”.
Such actions in the government called terrorism and crimes against humanity.
According to the head of the foreign Ministry of Libya Fathi of Basaga, the government will not allow mercenaries to control oil facilities in the country and deport them with military bases in the country.
On the eve of the national oil Corporation of Libya said that the foreign mercenaries “Wagner” and militants of the Sudanese Janjaweed are on the territory of the Deposit from the evening of 25 June.
Earlier production at the largest oil field Libya blocked by Libyan national army.
Recall that in late may, the commander of U.S. forces in Africa (AFRICOM), General Stephen Townsend formally accused Russia that it deployed to Libya several of its MiG-29 fighters. The aircraft after taking off from Russia first landed in Syria, where they are repainted, and then went to Libya and are now at the air base El Dzhufra, which is located deep in the rear areas controlled by the so-called Libyan national army under the command of General Khalifa the Haftarot.
