Russia Apparently Deploys Forces Near Libyan Border In Egypt

Russian special operations units and drones are now stationed at the Sidi Barrani airbase, 60 miles from the Egypt-Libya border, according to United States officials who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Russian Federation has reportedly deployed special forces to an Egyptian near the Libyan border, in what could be a move to gain influence in Libya's tumultuous politics. They added that Russian Federation flew about six military units in February to another Egyptian base farther east in Marsa Matrouh, according to Reuters.

Several media reports have been speculating about a potential secret deal between Haftar and the Kremlin according to which Russia will arm Haftar's forces in his endeavor to gain control of the whole country in return for a Russian military base in Libya.

Questions about Russia's role in north Africa coincide with growing concerns in Washington about Moscow's intentions in oil-rich Libya, which has become a patchwork of rival fiefdoms in the aftermath of a 2011 Nato-backed uprising against the late leader Muammar Gaddafi, who was a client of the former Soviet Union.
