French analyst: war in Libya - Putin's revenge on the West

The West is concerned about the active influence of Russia on the military-political situation in Libya. A large article on the role of Vladimir Putin and the Russian Federation in the Libyan crisis was published by French analyst Jean-Claude Galli in Le Courrier de Russie.


Europe is to blame for what is happening


Nine years ago, an international coalition created by Washington, Paris and London, bypassing the UN, created all the conditions for complete chaos and disorganization of the once richest African state. The Libyan Jamahiriya, zealously created by Muammar Gaddafi and his associates, collapsed under the blows of the rebels and the Western coalition forces supporting them.

Gaddafi himself was killed, and Libya turned into a "new Somalia." Since then, for nine years, the civil war in the country has not stopped. As a single political space, Libya ceased to exist, and entire areas fell into the hands of terrorist and criminal groups.

Supply of clans, tribes, groups and gangs weapons continues despite the international embargo: both western and eastern countries show their disregard for UN bans, literally flooding Libya with weapons. Today, everything is shipped to Libya - from old Soviet small arms to the latest Turkish drones.

At the same time, the French author admits that the events that take place today in Libya and in the Sahel region as a whole were a direct result of European, including (and primarily) French policy on the African continent. France allowed to destabilize the Sahel, and Russia and Turkey became the most important players in Libyan politics precisely thanks to the mistakes made by Paris.

As a result, terrorists became established in Libya, Mali, and several other countries of North and West Africa, and the Sahel’s transport arteries became channels of illegal migration, drug trafficking, and human trafficking. Europe, by the way, is now paying for its actions in Libya and a huge flow of migrants coming from all over tropical Africa through this country.

The response of the Russian president


According to Jean-Claude Galli, the Russian military presence in Syria and its active participation in supporting the troops of Marshal Khalifa Haftar in Libya can be seen as a response to the West on NATO expansion in Eastern Europe.


The West loves to focus on the ties of Marshal Haftar with the Russian military

Of course, according to Galli, there is an economic calculation in the policy of the Russian side in Libya, since no one has canceled the interest in Libyan oil and gas, in its ports, but in the foreground there is still a desire to respond symmetrically to the West to actions near Russian borders. This is a kind of revenge on the part of Putin, according to a French analyst.

Recep Erdogan already sets conditions for Europe, relying on the advantages of Turkey’s geographical position: migrants from the countries of the Near and Middle East can get to the Balkans and further to Central Europe via Asia Minor. In the same way, Vladimir Putin can act if he manages to establish control over Libya (it does not matter whether Haftar or Faiz Saraj is in his hands). After all, Libya is also an important transit point for illegal migration and the flow of refugees.

However, the French publicist emphasizes that it is unlikely that Putin puts such considerations in the first place:

I bet that the head of the Russian state will experience great satisfaction, not to mention strong personal pleasure, from revenge on the Western powers, which, in his opinion, violated Russian interests in 2011, including in Libya.

        The question is, when will it all end? Nine years of the war - and everything is just beginning ... Europe will not be able to digest so many refugees. When Gaddafi, Libya was a natural buffer for them. Well - now all roads are open.

          Never. Extensive zones of instability are urgently needed in Western civilization, for both political and economic reasons. Without such zones, a capitalist economy cannot exist at all. So the krovushka will continue to pour. By streams. Is always. Children will die in anguish and horror, peaceful people will suffer and die, country after country will collapse.
          And there is no more hope. Nothing to hope for ...

            “And cyclists,” adds Riesenfeld.
            - What does the cyclists have to do with it? - in turn, Henry is surprised.
            - And what have the Jews?

    fool Milay, we haven’t begun to answer the West symmetrically yet, found a response 1000 miles away. We will return Alsace and Germany's Lorraine, then you can jump. And we will turn Gdansk to Danzig, well, there, on trifles. Then live in peace and harmony, and we'll see "whose Crimea". repeat

    Another nonsense from the next journalist. But even though Putin didn’t personally bomb Libya - thanks for that. And if democracies bomb, and all the more humanitarian-carpet way, then this is not considered bombing. And Gaddafi himself is to blame - not only was he planning to say a new weighty word in the currency regulation of the continent, he also dared to build a Jamahiriya with such a social system that not only the Gulf monarchies began to look askance at him, but even the countries of enlightened democracies, seeing in this variety Communism is a bad role model.
    Does the Frenchman still itch on the drug bill? - So even before the Libyan events, the Afro-French are on the new Afro-French land and quite openly trade in substances - yes, in the same Marseilles. Refugees? - any manager from the mayor’s level and above should have deducted in the textbook on sociology that only a small percentage of those who came to assimilate assimilated, the rest are grouped in chinatowns and continue to live according to their cultural traditions - so that the hands of European politicians are visible to this previously thought-out scam, not Putin. Putin has not even begun to take revenge, and the worst is yet to come for France.

    Nonsense of pure water.
    The warring parties in Libya are looking for (and find) those who could support them.
    Situational allies, such as: Iran-Russia-Turkey in Syria, Egypt-Russia in Libya cannot be considered strategic, though tactical partners.
    It’s just that the cards of interest lay down.
    No more.
    And the failure of the pseudo policy of the West in Libya, whose goal was prosaic and mercantile - to destroy a strong state and its strong leader, as a destabilizing factor in the universal admiration for the "golden billion."
    But now, with all the heap of problems that have floated to the surface (refugees, the expansion of the military conflict, the involvement of NATO allies from different sides of the "barricades" into this conflict, and much more, no one knows.
    Although the French know, this is Russia and Putin is to blame.
    No one saw our Foreign Minister S. Lavrov?
    I want to consult with him what to call these scribblers.

    But who needs this, for example, France, to take revenge on her? Much honor, gentlemen! Or what to call you there now, comrades? "But there is also God's judgment, confidants of debauchery! There is a formidable judgment: it waits; He is inaccessible to the ringing of gold, And he knows thoughts and deeds in advance. Then you will needlessly resort to backbiting." And for the French, this is just the beginning.

      French analyst: war in Libya - Putin's revenge on the West
      And what is there to think especially ??? - Europeans blame everything on Putin ...
      In fact, the first bombs on Syria back in 2011 were dropped by the French !!! And now the arrows have moved - it's like we are not !!! Allegedly fighting terrorism, modern France has spawned the largest nest of terrorism in northern Africa - and the French will come back to it !!!
      Yes, Macron is not a pawn - it is a piece in the hands of the USA - !!! The United States moves Macron and for one, France on the world map as they want !!!

      A pun in the subject - Why does independent France behave so dependently in international politics ???

    It’s sooooo interesting. Weapons are delivered to Haftaru from the UAE, Egypt is preparing to fight on its side, but all this, for some reason, is Putin’s revenge. It’s interesting if they, in their West, poison themselves with mold cheese and sit in need for seven hours — will this also be Putin’s personal revenge? Apparently, the GDP has become the god of not only Svidomo, but also their protectors. They would need a psychiatrist with this disaster, but this is bad luck: medicine in Europe is so expensive that even the elite are not able to pay for their treatment from obsessions.
