‘Wherever Wagner goes destruction happens’: Libya’s GNA slams Russian role in conflict | Middle East Eye

Turmoil in Libya has led to Fathi Bashagha, the interior minister of the Government of National Accord to ask the U.S. for help in stomping out the local Islamic State group that is on the rise. Bashagha claims that Russia has sent the Wagner Group, a shadowy Kremlin-backed private military contractor, in an attempt to rebuild what remains of Muammar Gaddafi’s system, which was overthrown back in 2011. Moscow has denied these allegations, saying they have never sent mercenaries to the country. Bashagha is asking the U.S. to help restore peace and order due to the U.S. being a strong ally when the old government was brought down.
