The destruction of the US drone in Libya: the State Department announced the intervention of the Russian Federation

Recently we Reportedas from the Russian Pantsir-S1E air defense missile system, which the Libyan National Army (LNA) possesses, Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, the American drone MQ-9 Reaper, which "democratically" flew over the cities of Libya, was destroyed. And so, on November 26, 2019, a statement appeared on the official website of the US State Department, in which the assistant secretary of state for Middle East affairs, David Schenker, was outraged by the “military intervention of Russia,” which threatens security and stability in Libya.

A senior American official who worries about the Libyan people every day said that Washington is still doing everything for the peaceful and prosperous future of Libya.

To make it real, we need real commitment from external actors to stop the incitement to violence. In particular, Russia's military intervention threatens peace, security and stability

- stressed Schenker.

Schenker specified that by Russian military intervention he means both regular troops of Russia and fighters of the Wagner private military company (PMC). He added that Russia has significant forces in Libya, which interact with the LNA. But about the fact that in Libya since February 2011 there has been a civil war organized by the United States, the official forgot to inform.

It should be recalled that on November 7, 2019, Deputy Foreign Minister of Russia Sergei Ryabkov denied information about the arrival of “Russian mercenaries” in Libya. By the way, recently representatives of South African PMCs complainedthat their Russian colleagues at Wagner PMC are taking their bread in Mozambique (Africa).

    That's how .., I personally thought that the topic of drones, drones and the way to catch them with nets was already closed ...
    - What here ... here ... here ... here you can still discuss ... but it turns out that I will have to give even more additional explanations ...
    - So ...- where did we stop last time (I stopped) ...
    - On the fact that "non-striking drones" can be easily caught in the air with nets ... -Yes, that's right ...- I repeat again:
    - With the help of the same An-3, all this can be done ...- the speed is quite comparable for this ...- And An-3 can use the network as a "loop" that it will pull in the air with itself ...- to capture such drone (s); or maybe just shoot this net from some distance towards this (their) drone (s) ... - nothing complicated ...
    - Ah, yes ... - after all, there are still sophisticated shock drones that can carry weapons (missiles, air bombs, etc. ...) and strike themselves ... -they are faster, and they have a higher ceiling ... -An An-3 in such cases may not always be effective ...
    - But the use of such shock drones (like the MQ-9 Reaper and the like) ... is already, in fact ... is already a real war (declaration of war); where serious air defense systems are already being used (surface-to-air missiles, fighter-interceptors, etc.) ... - And not every enemy has the courage to use these strikers ... - everything is too much "in an adult way" ... - there is an act of open aggression ... -And such an act can also be shown somewhere over a neutral territory ... - So this shot down drone flew far from "its territory" and from the territory of that state , to which the owner of this drone will not dare to declare an open military confrontation ... - this is, in fact ... - "neutral territory" of Libya.
    - And with nets you can easily catch "spy drones" in "simple peacetime" ... - Why shoot at them "with all the guns at sparrows" when they can be taken with "bare hands" ... -Hahah ...
    To this topic ... personally, I can add that these nets can be used not only for "catching drones" ... - but also for "neutralizing birds" .. which often get into the engines of military and civil aircraft and cause crashes ...
    - Here ... - during takeoff and landing, an airplane (helicopter, etc.) can shoot off heat traps to protect itself from "stingers" and similar nasty things ... - And in the same way, an airplane can shoot off "bird nets" ...
    - Tiny (like a cobweb), almost invisible kapron nets ... - such can be loaded in whole containers onto an airplane (helicopter) ... -If even such a network itself is suddenly sucked into the engine, then it will melt instantly (it will melt without a trace ) ...

    - Actually, I am very kind today ... - I congratulated my two nephews on the "Day of the Russian Marine Corps" ...
    - One served in the Kaliningrad region (was a marine); and the second in the Far East (also in such marine special units of the Pacific Fleet .., some kind of "holulayster", somehow they call themselves there) ...
    - They told me something about the Wagner PMC ... -I was already worried ... -Don't they gather there too ... -But, no ...- both are studying ...- one already graduating from university ...
    - But in general, it's strange ... after serving in these units (this is in the special forces of the Pacific Fleet .., these "holulaysters" are also put on a "special record" in the police ... - Figase ... - we arrived ...) .. - I didn't know ... - Hahah ...

      Greetings to your nephew from one beautiful bay on Russky Island, and you ... it’s better not to shame already with these nets and drones ... I thought, thought a little, but realized what nonsense you drive, but it doesn’t ... More and about birds the thought has developed, compared with the Stingers - this is right for the patent, laughing although environmentalists will not like it. Only missiles from MANPADS are trapped in heat, they fly behind them, instead of an airplane, this is the principle. In order for the birds to do the same, we must apparently shoot a net full of seeds and breadcrumbs, otherwise the bird will not go to it wink - This is a free addition to your otherwise successful development. laughing
      And I don't need to answer, don`t forget - I`m an outsider for You now. hi

    - you go! And this American drone there, apparently, is studying weather conditions, or spraying democracy molecules over Libya, not otherwise ... laughing

    Something they told me about PMC "Wagner"

    Come on - these guys are all there ..... they are unlikely to tell something.
    Your first comment on this topic is fierce nonsense. It’s impossible to call IT more censorship)))
