    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...
