You seem to be hung up on "official" troops whilst Serg and I are not and I don't know where you got it from.
All my quoted Twitter post said was "Russian military personal" and I stand by my statement that they could well be there, indeed we should expect them to be there, in the background, advisors etc.
Difference is that we are correct and you and Sieg are not. Sieg is a known liar and we all called him out on it. You can believe whatever BS you want but so far, we are all aware of it and Russia admits to what they do unlike certain players (UK, US, etc).
If Russian troops were actually in Libya, we would know. Much like how Russian troops moved around in Crimea quickly and we all knew about it. But all of a sudden with this, its silence. No pictures, no insignias, nothing. In an age were cameras catch nearly everything.
When did I ever claim regular units of the Russian Army are in Libya? because for the life of me, I don't recall ever making that statement anywhere on this forum. I said Russia does put their men's lives at risk if they deem it worthwhile while and everyone does this.
But standard tactic for people on this forum put words in other people's mouths. I don't care if you want to call me something for things I say but genius ATLEAST make sure I actually said it. This isn't hard to do Mike, very simple.
If you are talking about Wagner, then yes they are in Libya and you can doubt their existence all you want and believe they aren't Russian but that's on you because Wagner is in Libya and they are Russian. Wagner is a tool of the Russian government.
