Cairo has reportedly hosted meetings between key figures of the conflict in Libya in recent weeks, including one between Khalifa Haftar, the commander of the self-proclaimed Libyan National Army, which is based in eastern Libya, and Fayez al-Sarraj, who serves as the head of the unity government, which is based in the capital, Tripoli, in the west, and enjoys support from the United Nations.
The source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Vladislav Kuzmichev and Mikhail Zavali of Rosoboronexport signed a contract to provide 20 Russian warplanes – 10 Sukhoi Su-35, 4 10 Sukhoi Su-30 and 6 Yakovlev Yak-130 – as well as several Project 636 Kilo-class submarines and tanks and armoured vehicles.
The Libyan press reports that the chief of the General staff Gerasimov, the Russian Federation and a number of senior Russian military arrived in Tobruk to hold talks with Haftar’s forces, which have already called to Moscow in search of political support and weapons.
Having overwhelming superiority in men and materiel, with the support of the special forces of Britain, France and Italy, as well as American military aid, troops from Tripoli and Misrata picked out militants from the coastal districts with the speed of a turtle, but before Sirte has been cut off, the bulk of the fighters had left and the defense held up to thousands of militants who for almost six months kept a piece of the city from the superior forces of the enemy.

Libya’s UN-backed unity government suffered a blow in its Tripoli base late on Friday when a rival seized key offices in the capital and proclaimed the reinstatement of the former administration.
The Government of National Accord (GNA) was installed by the UN in April, intended to replace two rival administrations, one in Tripoli and one in the eastern Cyrenaica region.
Despite the significant superiority in forces from the conglomerate of various Libyan groups and their support of the United States, Italy, France and Britain, the city still has not been taken by the beginning of October.
