Erdogan accused Shoigu of helping "Haftar terrorists"


The Turkish president accused the Russian defense minister of collaborating with mercenaries and "LNA terrorists."

Amid Turkish troops and pro-Turkish militants sent to Libya being defeated by the Libyan National Army led by Khalifa Haftar, an eccentric Turkish leader unexpectedly stated that it was the head of the Russian Defense Ministry, Sergei Shoigu, who was associated with the Libyan National Army, which Turkey is considered terrorists, which Erdogan was absolutely not afraid to openly declare.

“In a conversation with reporters, the Turkish leader talked about a photograph in which Shoigu, the head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia Valery Gerasimov, the commander of the Libyan National Army (KhLA) Khalifa Haftar, as well as someone whom Erdogan called the head of the Wagner PMC, were captured in one room. “They are all Russia's top military officials, and they run Wagner.” And they still continue to claim that they have no connections [with Wagner]. At present, Russia is leading the war [in Libya] at the highest level, ”he said.- сообщает publication "Lenta.ru".

Erdogan’s accusations against the head of the Russian Ministry of Defense could have very serious consequences for Turkey, especially since Turkey illegally smuggles terrorists from Syria to Libya, and Erdogan’s current behavior in Syria may even force the Russian military to postpone any negotiations with Turkey and resume powerful strikes on the positions of fighters.
