Arab state is involved in shutting down Libyan oil via support for Haftar, Bashagha says



The Libyan Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha said an Arab country is involved in the crime of blockading Libyan oil and shutting down Sharara oilfield by funding Russian Wagner Group mercenaries.

Bashagha said on Twitter that the control of Russian mercenaries over Libyan oil is a dangerous threat to the Libyan national security and to the interests of US and European companies working in Libyan oil sector.

The Libyan Interior Minister called on the European Union to list Wagner Group that is linked to the Kremlin for sanctions against entities supporting and sponsoring terrorism after its elements had committed several crimes against humanity in Libya.
