American general: Russian planes flew to Libya via Iran

The United States continues to comment on its own statements about the transfer of Russian aircraft to Libya. Recall that the original African Command of the United States (AFRICOM) issued statements about the alleged transfer of MiG-29 and Su-24 aircraft that were “repainted in Syrian Hmeimim” to one of the airbases in Libya.


Then the Israeli company ISI, which operates a spy satellite, published several satellite photos, where it already announced the transfer to Libya by Russia of "MiG-29 and MiG-23 fighters, as well as helicopters and radar."

Now in the same AFRICOM they declare "the possible reasons for the transfer of aircraft by Russia to Libyan territory." Representative of the US Army’s African Command Intelligence Directorate General Greg Hadfield said that Russia "is creating a geostrategic stronghold in North Africa." To do this, according to the American general, the Russian Federation and "threw 14 combat aircraft into Libya."

Headfield:

According to our data, so far none of the transferred planes have been used. But they can make a difference and provide substantial assistance to the forces that tried to capture Tripoli.

By the forces trying to capture Tripoli, Hadfield means the Libyan national army of Marshal Haftar, supported by the parliamentary forces of the country and opposing the so-called Government of National Accord Fayez Saraj.

Headfield said that according to US intelligence, Russian planes flew to Libya through Iran and the Syrian Arab Republic.

Meanwhile, reports are coming from Libya about ongoing clashes in the Libyan Tarhuna region, where PNS forces are trying to encircle Haftar’s troops.

        This is commonplace in their media! But Iran, even during the time of the Russian operation in Syria, offered our military aerodromes to our aerospace forces! But Russia refused. So as not to anger "our Jewish friends" ... hi

          Something in this episode, you put everything upside down. Russia was negotiating with Iran so that Tehran would allow the deployment of Russian airspace forces for the period of the operation in Syria, but Tehran refused because the ban on the deployment of foreign military contingents was prescribed in the Constitution, and therefore, for the entire duration of the operation it was allowed to use their airfield VKS forces only once or twice and that's it. Neither we nor they raised this topic. But with the use of the airspace of Iran, we are with them all type of top.

          Malta has announced the seizure of counterfeit Libyan currency worth more than $ 1 million - the money was printed by the Russian state-owned enterprise Goznakom, the statement said on the official website of the US Department of State. It is noted there that a certain quote was ordered, "an illegitimate parallel organization."

          The amount itself is somehow strange. Even considering that the Libyan dinar is equal to a ratio of 1 to 0,7 ... the amount is small, this is the volume of one small briefcase-case. Who should have imported it to Malta?

              Neither Egypt nor the states of the MiG-23 were left behind due to the lack of spare parts and accessories even in the Amer squadron "Aggressor" - they were written off for scrap! They survived in Libya itself, and of its closest neighbors - only in Syria and Ethiopia and Yemen .....

            The government of Malta seized a batch of counterfeit Libyan currency in the amount of 1,1 billion dollars, according to the website of the US State Department.

              well, cpu tape is certainly a cool resource, although this is not the first violin, someone in the State Department came up with counterfeit currency, there is no such financial term, money can be fake or not, otherwise it’s candy wrappers, but what did they hold up papers that printed numbers 1 billion, do not stick. Since Libya has dual power, the other side can put its money into circulation, in which case if you recognize it then it is money, if not, then candy wrappers.

                    here the question is not so much financial as legal. Malta recognizes only the Government of National Accord; accordingly, the release of Libyan dinars for the Haftar government is considered illegal.
                    And the United States notes that the uncontrolled commissioning of billions of dinars by the unrecognized Haftar government will undermine the Libyan economy. According to data from open sources, since 2016, Russia has delivered to Libya at least 13,5 billion dinars, or $ 9,5 billion at the current exchange rate.

                      well enough tired
                      - so the contract was signed in 2015 with the central bank in Tobruk, the contract was paid and sent to Tobruk according to the contract:
                      - The right of the Central Bank in Tobruk to conclude such contracts is secured by a decision of the government of national unity in Tripoli in 2016, and the decision has not been canceled and is still valid
                      - Malta's customs last year detained a load of Libyan banknotes in violation of international law;
                      - and the screech of the State Department only indicated where the ears were sticking out and who clicked on the Malta public authority
                      -Our morons from the state sign who sent the goods not directly but through Malta have once again proved that international law is a fiction, and the authorities of Malta will always wave to the strong

    What difference does it fly? Another question is important: did they fly at all and at whose expense the banquet? And who will fight on them? If Haftar pays and we have a lot of outdated equipment, then why not. Well, who is flying is more difficult. I don’t think our VKS pilots will fit into this fight. Even by mercenaries, without serious support for electronic warfare systems, air defense and other security measures. Well, flight training from all over the Arab world can make anti-advertising to our weapons. How this happens with the Shells.
