Russia has deployed MiG-29s and other aircraft to Libya in what appeared to be the throwing down of a gauntlet to Turkey and other countries that might think Moscow is ending its support for the eastern Libyan government of Khalifa Haftar. It is a big play for Russia, doing it in broad daylight to show off, after around ten Russian Pantsir air defense systems were reportedly destroyed by Turkish drones in Libya.
Libya has rapidly become an expanding proxy war as Turkey has poured mercenaries and drones into Tripoli to support the government of western Libya in a civil war. Turkey signed an energy deal that gives it claims over the Mediterranean in November last year. Since then, Ankara’s clandestine support, including armored vehicles, has grown for the Government of the National Accord in Tripoli.

We destroyed Libya in order to steal its wealth.
