US State Department accuses Russia of Turkish invasion of Libya

Russia intervenes in Libya’s internal affairs, which in turn led to military intervention in Turkey. This statement was made by Assistant Secretary of State for Middle East Affairs David Schenker.


Speaking at a briefing, Schenker said that Turkey’s military presence in Libya was provoked by Russia, which allegedly saturates Libya with weapons and mercenaries, providing all kinds of support for the Haftar Libyan National Army. These actions of Moscow led to the fact that Ankara was forced to help the second side of the conflict - the Government of the national consent of Saraj, sitting in Tripoli.

Despite the fact that the Libyan National Army ended the siege of Tripoli and despite the (negotiations) (...), the fighting intensified with the participation of foreigners. We are particularly concerned about the continued influx of Russian military equipment, weapons and Russian mercenaries Wagner, whose presence led to significant Turkish intervention, which is taking place now

he said, but without citing any evidence of "Russian interference."

In the continuation of his speech, Schenker called Russia's actions a "challenge to US interests" and a threat to "stability in the Eastern Mediterranean." According to him, the Libyan people "wishes the end of foreign intervention."

In turn, the Russian Foreign Ministry denied all statements by the representative of the US State Department, saying that this information is based on rigged data.

        I remember, I don’t remember. Somehow, "figures" from the USA "forgot" because of whom it is necessary to conduct military operations in Libya and whose actions led the country to such a state. Insolent hypocrites

            Europe (in France, in this case) is not capable of independent military operations at all, and if something is done, it’s only with an eye on America.

              In vain do you think so, Europe does not depend much on the USA whoever says it. And Libya is generally the former colony of France, so it had more influence there than the United States ... Here, by the way, you need to think about it. Is Europe playing with the hands of the USA? Doing all the dirty work by the U.S. Army ...

            Yes, nothing at all. They were not there:
            From the USA:
            about 500 tanks, 240 missile launchers and air defense systems, 390 aviation units (helicopters, planes)
            US Navy:
            USS Mount Whitney flagship
            USS Kearsarge (LHD-3), a universal amphibious assault ship of the Uosp type
            USS Ponce (LPD-15), Austin Landing Helicopter Dock
            USS Barry (DDG-52), Arly Burke type destroyer
            USS Stout (DDG-55), Arly Burke type destroyer
            USS Providence (SSN-719), Los Angeles Submarine
            USS Scranton, Los Angeles Nuclear Submarine
            USS Florida (SSGN-728), Ohio Type SSGN
            1200 Marines.
            On March 19, the US military fired more than 110 Tomahawk missiles.
            On the afternoon of March 20, US strategic bombers launched air strikes at the main Libyan airfield. Three military aircraft of the US Air Force B-2 (type "Stealth") dropped 40 bombs on this strategic target. Etc.
            And also, this is probably a European secretary with a distorted face, drooling while watching the head of Libya being killed.

In this way, Russia can only bark with small pebbles as an old dog, and cannot bite because of a lack of teeth. If the dwarf countries of Eastern Europe are already openly sending us ...

But in the war, Russia so far loses unfortunately. The funny thing is You are an adequate person, your comments on some issues are very robust ... But you don’t see the obvious, local successes are not worth it ... Russia has lost its influence in the world ... All sorts of Syria (at this stage not having influence in region) It's about nothing. It is time to stop self-hypnosis about the greatness of today's Russia!

        I forgot tightly. Now, there was a situevina, when in April last year, “valiant mattresses” hastily left Tripoli in view of the Haftar attack and looked at this situation a little from the outside, believing that the recognition of the PNS by the UN (a pocket organization tailored to the interests of mattresses), It allows you to control the situation remotely, but in practice in Libya it happened that it tears mattress patterns - the interests of the countries belonging to NATO clashed, namely Turkey and Italy blow for Saraji, and Greece and France blow for Haftar. Open side to one side, mattresses can not because it will seriously hit NATO’s much-vaunted unity, but they also cannot remain silent, since so many have been hiding in anticipation, but what will PAPA say? “Papa”, on a campaign, having procubated all the muddy movements and realizing that it’s more expensive to get into his wrestling squad, accused Russia of all claims to it, it destabilizes everything there. Only here, to the displeasure of the mattresses, Egypt breaks into this matter openly, pulling the army to the borders of Libya, which absolutely does not need to strengthen Turkey’s position at hand, which puts the United States in a difficult position. Based on the foregoing, for their failures in the post-Gaddafi period in Libya, mattresses will hang all the dogs on anyone, but not on themselves, and Russia from their point of view is very suitable for this because this is an occasion for new sanctions and the hope that they would glue the interests of their NATO balamutes who are ready to fight among themselves for Libyan oil, in front of a common threat.

      They smoke at home, but in Congress and the State Department they swallow tablets
      Many of the leading US lawmakers seem to be pretty addicted to pills and need a steady stream of pharmaceuticals that are delivered daily to Capitol Hill and sold through a local Congressional pharmacy known as Grubb's, Ethan Huff reports. ....... High-ranking Americans also drink pills to get rid of more serious medical indicators, such as Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia (personality degradation). As a rule, pharmacological preparations for these diseases contain drugs. ..... So, there are legitimate doubts about whether people with such serious illnesses are able to draft and enact United States laws?
      So all the statements of “Psak” from the State Department are the speech of mentally ill people.

    Turkey's military presence in Libya was provoked by Russia
    Arrived. Look in the toilet, suddenly and there the hand of Moscow is ready to grab by the causal place and tear something? In their country, autonomy is beginning to be declared in cities, the police are put on their knees, the white people are forced to apologize, the monuments are demolished, and they are all looking for what else to attach Russia to and what additional "unprecedented" sanctions to announce. Yes, you burn with blue flame overseas dives.

    Anglo-Saxons really have their own interests. And if someone is ahead of them in something, or it seems to them that he is ahead of him, then he is guilty by definition - already by the fact of his independent existence.

      Anglo-Saxons have truly eternal interests


      Their social formation has not changed at all for hundreds of years. Invariable capitalism and its sole purpose is enrichment in any way. But their resources for this purpose have long been lacking, so the Anglo-Saxons suck out other people's resources from everyone whom they can reach. Someone using the so-called soft power, and those who artichat invariably declare dictatorships with all the ensuing consequences.

        Hi Dmitry soldier
        With Psaki it was all easier, very quickly everyone realized that there was nothing to listen to there. There, just to look and neighing ... did not get bored, in short.
        The present ones are full of f / hell! They are lying, they are also trying to prove something! We don’t care, but naive / gullible ones may lose the correct guidelines.

    Russia intervenes in Libya’s internal affairs, which in turn led to military intervention in Turkey. This statement was made by Assistant Secretary of State for Middle East Affairs David Schenker.

    US State Department accuses Russia of Turkish invasion of Libya

    Are they out there, expired hallucinogenic mushrooms gobbled up in their State Department? How can one blame a country for a third country invading a third country? Russia forced Turkey or what?
    Why don't the Yankees growl at the Turks themselves?
    All this is very strange.

    laughing : good The super-fact of Russia's presence in the region is already a guarantee of security. Because we all know that we have already stopped "expressing concerns," and are beating right away on the impudent red face. After the first provocation of Nusra, al-Qaeda, and other pendoshavok, slippers will fly in all directions.
