    The GRU wasn't disbanded, if that's what u r implying; it just changed its name to GUG: Главноe Yправлениe Генштаба, or Main General Staff Directorate.

    The irony is that the west and Europe did their best to break Libya... which resulted in the flood of refugees to Europe...

    Now the Russians are trying to fix the country and help restore law and order they are complaining that the flood of refugees was Russias doing and it wasn't their fault at all...

    I would say Russia should provide submarine transport to African refugees and arm each one so that they wont just get deported when they get to Europe without a fight...

    Turkish defense minister holds official visits in Libya

    Turkey's defense minister on Nov. 5 held meetings with Libyan officials in the capital Tripoli.

    According to a Defense Ministry statement, Hulusi Akar met at the Prime Ministry with officials including Fayez al-Sarraj, the head of Libya's Presidential Council, and chaired meetings between the delegations.

    Akar also met with Libyan Interior Minister Fatih Ali Bashagha and Khalid al-Mishri, head of the High Council of State (HCS).

    During the meetings, cooperation between the two countries on defense, military, and regional security issues was discussed.

    Currently, two rival seats of power are vying for supremacy in Libya: an internationally recognized national unity government based in Tripoli, and an “interim” government supported by a legislative assembly based in the eastern city of Tobruk.

    Headed by al-Sarraj, the Tripoli government was established in early 2016.
