Haftar rejects Putin's offer to cease fire


On January 8, 2020, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after the official opening of the Turkish Stream, called for an end to hostilities in Libya from 00:00 on January 12, 2020, and also spoke on a number of other important issues. In response, according to the American agency Bloomberg, the Libyan National Army (LNA), under the command of Field Marshal Khalifa Haftar, continued the offensive on Tripoli and Misurata, after the capture of Sirte. At the same time, the agency refers to the statement of the representative of the VLA, which refused the initiative to establish a ceasefire.


It should be noted that the Government of National Accord (PNC) of Libya, consisting of Islamists, but recognized by the UN and controlling part of the territories in the west of the country, supported the proposal of Moscow and Ankara. And this is not surprising, because the PNS troops are on the verge of being defeated by the troops of the parliament, located in Tobruk in the east of the country, and supported by Egypt and several other countries. By the way, the last attempts by the LNA to seize Tripoli have been ongoing since April 2019.

For clarity, it needs to be clarified that bloodshed in Libya has not stopped since February 2011. There is already a second civil war. It began in the spring of 2014, after the “revolutionaries” and the Islamists were unable to “divide everything correctly” after the murder of Muammar Gaddafi’s dismantling until the founding of his Jamahiriya.

It should be added that the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Sergey Lavrov, has already told the media about the position of Moscow and Ankara regarding tensions in Libya and the Persian Gulf.


We remind you that on January 2, 2020, the Turkish parliament approved the provision of military assistance to the Liberal Democratic Party. After that, Khalifa Haftar spoke of general mobilization in connection with the threat of invasion of foreign troops.

      Logically, what has been started must be completed to the end, and then it will be possible to talk.
      It is only in some countries (we will not point the finger) that military "strategists" and "tactics" can play giveaways with all sorts of oppositions at the expense of the personal courage of the humanitarian resource, without looking at losses.

      And then there are no American and British PMCs that can merge even faster?

          Well, what should they do there if Haftar's plans do not coincide with the Russian Federation, it seems that the Russian Federation is once again lucky with an "ally" who adheres to a "multi-vector" policy ...

            So, after all, the Russian Federation chooses allies for itself according to the “residual principle” - “the enemy of the USA?” I’m a friend! ” And a friend immediately “Give grandmother / weapons / advisers !!” - "On the!"
            After a couple of years, the debt was written off. And there is no need to choose a new “friend” - the line is behind the “freebie”.

    The Turks will turn Field Marshal Haftar and his pack, including PMCs, into minced meat.

      The Turkish army is certainly strong, but they do not have a common border with Libya, this campaign will not look like a boat trip. And how these Aboriginal tribes will perceive these Turks is also not clear.
      So the Turks have the opportunity to get stuck on the very tomatoes, and, of course, try to solve the rest of NATO and pull up the rest.
      There remains, of course, the "Iranian" option of pacifying the field marshal.

        Unlike the Russian Federation, Turkey has UDC ....

        And how these Aboriginal tribes will perceive these Turks is also not clear.

        For the Turks, this is a m..y factor, they will drive these aborigines into the depths of Libya with air strikes and that's all

        So the Turks have the opportunity to get stuck on the very tomatoes

        For some reason, the Russian Federation is not bogged down in the SAR ... it all depends on what goals the Turkish armed forces will face in Libya, hardly the last will be - deserts are needed, everything will be limited to ports, gas pipelines and oil fields ... and the establishment of a pro-Turkish and pro-American government. ...
        Previously, the Turks scared Europeans with refugees located on its territory, now they will also scare the EU with refugees located in Libya ....

        There remains, of course, the "Iranian" option of pacifying the field marshal.

        The cheapest, but the Turks do not have carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic of MB and WB, respectively, the Turks will operate on land, and the Anglo-Saxons from the sea ....

          So what? The Turks already have two fronts, one in Syria, the other in eastern Turkey. A humane resource is not infinite and not free.

          ... they will drive these aborigines deep into Libya with airstrikes and that's all ...

          How long? What long-term alternative can they offer these aborigines? Escape to Europe?

          ... what goals will face the Turkish Armed Forces in Libya

          They will not be able to digest it themselves and will not give it to others. This is how the pro-Islamic "mess" in the region will remain for the next decades.

          ... Turks do not have carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic of MB and WB

          The Turks have NATO (or they have it) and within this framework everything can arise for them.

          ... the Turks will operate on land, and the Anglo-Saxons - from the sea ....

          There remains, of course, also the "Iranian" version ... good

      Of course, nobody cares about the field marshal, but if the Russian PMC suffers, why do you think that the Turks will not suffer, or they have iron eggs ...

        ... if the Russian PMC suffers, why do you think that the Turks will not suffer then

        In this regard, everything is fine. Because the PMC, "... like a gopher ... (c)", and besides, according to Mr. Putin, does not represent Russian interests, and, of course, it is not a "tourist" who, by chance, was caught in the millstones of strangers jurisdictions.
        And how can the Turks suffer? They’ll build another nuclear station or

        Turks do not have carriers of the Kyrgyz Republic of MB and WB.

        To sell CDs with carriers so that they are. wink
