The Russian ambassador reiterates his denial of sending 1,500 Russian soldiers to Libya

The Russian Ambassador to Libya, Aydar Aganin, has renewed his denial of reports regarding the arrival of 1,500 regular Russian soldiers to eastern Libya and that Moscow intends to establish a naval base there, describing these reports as Western accusations that aim to justify the Western presence in Libya, according to him.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Aganin did acknowledge however the presence of Russian units in eastern Libya who have been there for some time in coordination with Khalifa Haftar, claiming that they are ready to provide support to any official party in Libya if it requests so.

Aganin also added that they had made contacts with all parties in Libya in an effort to end the political division and unify sovereign state institutions, indicating that the electoral path is the only way to end the crisis and move things forward in the country.
