Moscow is ready to become the initiator of lifting the arms embargo from Libya after the creation of the unified armed forces in the country, but so far there is no certainty that weapon will not fall into the hands of terrorists, said in an interview RIA News Russian ambassador to Tripoli, Ivan Molotkov.


The arms embargo on Libya has been in effect since February 2011. The Foreign Minister of the Government of National Accord of this country, Mohammed Siyal, earlier stated that the authorities in Tripoli, in order to increase security in the country, addressed the United Nations with a question of easing the arms embargo.

Ambassador said when Russia initiates lifting the arms embargo from Libya


The Russian diplomat explained that the meaning of the arms embargo imposed is “to prevent weapons supplied from abroad from falling into the hands of terrorist groups.

However, he noted that

As soon as unified armed forces are created in Libya, and numerous militias, which now do not recognize any authority over themselves, are dissolved or integrated into official military structures, we will be ready to support or even initiate the issue of lifting or easing existing restrictions


In the east of the country in the city of Tobruk there is a parliament elected by the people, and in the west in the capital Tripoli is ruled by the government of national accord, formed with the support of the United Nations and Europe, headed by Faez Sarraj. The authorities of the eastern part of the country operate independently of Tripoli and cooperate with the national army led by Khalifa Hoftar, who is waging a protracted war with the militants. In the south of the country live a large number of tribes, which are also not subject to Tripoli.

    The VKSs brought to Russia apparently did not have much time to rest.

      They have Israel there at their side. So, first of all, air defense is needed, and modern, with trained specialists. Moreover, it is difficult to sell air defense to terrorists.
      And the Russian Aerospace Forces have nothing to do there. There is a base in Syria, no longer needed. We are not NATO, the whole world to sit up with bases.

        What moon are you from? Only that the GDP has agreed with Egypt to use Egyptian airfields. Israel, this is on the other side, look at the maps.

          Using GDP and having a base is not the same thing.
          And Israel is there. Bombers will fly to Libya, but there is a reason to bomb. It’s necessary for them to work out bombing exercises on someone, and here such a good training ground. So, a hotbed of terrorism.

            Regarding Israel. He’s not in Libya right now, he’s very harsh and apparently the last run-in of the entire district with a guarantee from Russia. Israel will soon move. Israel itself, as a center of force, was unacceptable to Jews because of its squabble nature.

            And Israel is there. Bombers to Libya

            And here is Israel. He is not involved in any side there, you are not confusing Libya and Lebanon with the case

          it is possible, but Afghan cheburators have not been able to get used to Pindel turntables for about 20 years.

      At the mattress toppers run wide. They still have not chosen whom? And so it would have been set for a long time.

    It's time, it's time for Russia to Libya. Haftar is waiting for help, and there are a lot of basmachi for the meat grinder and the Navy base in those parts is very useful to us.
