U.S. intel: Russia continues positioning military equipment in Libya via PMC Wagner

23:40, 24 July 2020 – UNIAN

The U.S. assesses that Russia supplied Wagner forces operating in Libya with fighter aircraft, military armored vehicles, air defense systems.

U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) has received new evidence that the Russian Federation continues positioning military equipment in Libya and supplying weapons to the front line through Private Military Company (PMC) Wagner Group.

“Russia continues to play an unhelpful role in Libya by delivering supplies and equipment to the Wagner group. Imagery continues to unmask their consistent denials,”

U.S. Marine Corps Maj.Gen. Bradford Gering, AFRICOM director of operations, said in a statement posted on AFRICOM’s official website.

According to him, it is assessed that the Russian Federation continues to violate UN Security Council Resolution UNSCR 1970 by actively providing military equipment and fighters to the front lines of the Libya conflict. The U.S. assesses that Russia supplied Wagner forces operating in Libya with fighter aircraft, military armored vehicles, air defense systems, and supplies.

The latest imagery details the extent of equipment being supplied to Wagner. Russian military cargo aircraft, including IL-76s, continue to supply Wagner fighters. Russian air defense equipment, including SA-22s, are present in Libya and operated by Russia, the Wagner Group or their proxies.

Photos also show Wagner utility trucks and Russian mine-resistant, ambush­protected armored vehicles are also present in Libya.

“The type and volume of equipment demonstrates an intent toward sustained offensive combat action capabilities, not humanitarian relief, and indicates the Russian Ministry of Defense is supporting these operations,” Gering said.

    The unmasking is obvious to everyone with a normal IQ. But, the orange one will deny our own observations and stick-up for his dwarf buddy. What does that tell us about his IQ?
