Turkish media: Cleaning up Russian mercenaries in Libya has become a necessity

Clearing Sirte and Al-Jufra airbase from Russian mercenaries is becoming a necessity. This was stated by the representative of the PNS, Muhammad Kanunu, according to the Turkish agency Anadolu.

Kanunu emphasized that Sirte, as the site of the concentration of Russian mercenary servicemen who were defeated by the Saraj army in Tripoli and Tarhun, has become the most dangerous place in Libya.

The PNS representative also noted that the Wagner PMC fighters created a large command center at the Al-Jufra airbase to take control of oil fields in southern Libya.

Recall that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said last week that Cairo, if necessary, could begin open hostilities in Libya. Al-Sisi considers such interference in Libyan affairs legal at the international level. He also mentioned that the seizure by the PNS fighters of the air base in Sirte and Al-Jufra is a “red line” calling on his army to be ready to carry out any military mission.

The UN recognizes the government in Tripoli, led by Faiz Saraj as the legitimate state power. In March, the PNS launched Operation Peace Storm Against Haftar to counter the Marshal’s attacks on the capital. Recently, government forces liberated strategically important points in Libya, including Tarhuna, the last stronghold of the LNA in the western part of the country.

    Cleaning up Russian mercenaries in Libya has become a necessity.

    If there will be no betrayal, as in Syria, you are tormented by cleaning!

      Not at all. They just mixed up with delight. The Libyan oil industry is controlled by American special forces. From the overthrow of Gaddafi.
      But Sirte and the rest are cleaned up - the Turks are not yet aware of where to meddle and where not to.

      The footage of the alleged destruction of "400 or 500 Wagnerites" is footage from a computer game.
      If you really look at them, turning on your brains (if they, of course, are), anyone will see that this is not a real shooting, namely a comp. game (AC-130 is called, sort of like).
      In Russia, PMCs are prohibited by law.

    The trolls of Urina (and the heaped cargoes praying on them), the trolls of Srael, the trolls of the Tri-ebaltik (and other, pro-ovsky "banana tribes"), relish and chew the lies about the "dead 400 Wagnerians"; and in New Russia, and in Syria, and in Libya, and in Limpopo.
    And even in the Schiaparella conflict (this is the Martian Republic - on the Sisyphus plateau near the Darwin crater on Mars), under the protection of the tyrant Barmaley, Wagnerites were killed more than 100 thousand ..
    But seriously, the first mentions of the unknown and mythical "Wagner's group" date back to 2014, at the height of the invasion of the Ura Nazis into Novorossia.
    Despite the fact that no one can reasonably say at least any factual data about the structure of the invented PMC Wagner, about its leadership and military tasks.
    Let me remind you - PMCs are prohibited in Russian law.
    Nevertheless, the story of a certain "Russian private military company" was picked up by both angry Ura and Western resources, and by the defenders of Donbass, who perceived reports about the "Wagner group" as actions of free shooters guarding the Russian World.
    Fakes and rumors are also full of information about the actions that are attributed to "Wagner" and his team. So, the "Wagner fighters" were sent by the media to any possible hot spots, across all continents (and to other planets) - while no one could claim with absolute certainty that they were really "Wagnerians".
    This alone should lead to suspicion that there is no "Wagner group" in sight.
    Rumors and gossip - these words can describe everything that runs around the history of the "Wagner group". The main questions are, of course, the personality of the "Wagner" himself - the liberal pro-Ovist media, attributed this nickname to Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Utkin - allegedly the commander of the 700th detachment of the 2nd GRU Special Forces brigade, stationed in the Pskov region.
    After the appearance of Dmitry Utkin in the Kremlin at a reception in honor of Heroes of the Fatherland Day, the opposition media literally choked in hysteria, painting the history of the nonexistent PMC.
    However, a number of contradictions come in here: firstly, Dmitry Utkin did not serve in this unit, his name is not mentioned in the data of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
    And secondly, after the reception in the Kremlin, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Peskov, confirmed that Lieutenant Colonel Dmitry Utkin was indeed at the reception - but as a gentleman of the Order of Courage and a representative from the Novgorod region.
    Naturally - because the officer served in the internal troops.
    It must be understood that the personality of the mythical "Wagner", as well as all the actions that are described as the operations of his PMCs, have either the character of frank legends or media fictions.
    Often there is a situation when the operations of the usual Russian military special forces and the MTR are passed off as the actions of the "Wagner group".
    For example, the mythical heroes of our days are credited with disarming the Urinsky soldiers during the Crimean events of 2014. Moreover, the assault on Palmyra in March 2016, which was carried out by the Syrian army with the support of our MTR, was also attributed to "Wagner attack aircraft." However, not a single source, neither among the Syrian soldiers, nor even more so in the Ministry of Defense, reports that the mythical PMC has fought or is fighting on Syrian soil.
    As noted in an interview with Nation News, director of the Center for Strategic Conjuncture Ivan Konovalov - the myth of PMC Wagner has gained such wide popularity, primarily due to the Urine information resources that tried to catch the West with new claims to Russia.
    "It was a kind of sensational information that was used by a certain kind of press. In the West, this story was very much seized upon - it was beneficial for them to increase the list of claims against Russia for actions in Syria. At the same time, private military companies have a rather odious reputation for West: remember the infamous Blackwater. And grabbing hold of the fact that Russia allegedly has a PMC in Syria was extremely profitable. But, the myth about PMC Wagner is untenable primarily due to the fact that Russian legislation does not provide for creating this kind of structures.
    In Russia, there are structures of a conditionally similar type (PSC and PSC) - but they are not engaged in special operations and military operations. Thus, the stories about the "Wagner group", which allegedly participated in the storming of especially significant fortified areas in Syria, are nonsense, since even classical PMCs are primarily concerned with security issues.
    The problem is that we do not have a law on private military companies - and accordingly, it is problematic to talk about the presence of PMCs as such. We have companies of a similar type that operate under contracts with Western private military companies - but we do not have exactly the same companies, because there is no law on PMCs. In addition, PMCs are being established as a commercial enterprise for the implementation of security.

    Another confirmation that the main patron of terrorists should not be taken as counterterrorism allies.

    PMCs are prohibited in Russia !!! But in the USA it is just a thriving business. And they recruit any rabble from all over the world. So what kind of Russian mercenaries are we talking about is not clear.
