Im watching BBC news channel at the moment and there have just been a new video of a Libyan Plane bombing..hmm
"Russia wants to see Libya as an independent, single, sovereign and democratic state, an integral part of the Arab world and an inalienable part of the African Union, a worthy member of the international community," he was quoted as saying. "Russia is seeking to build a bridge between these two banks that separate Libyan society." At the recent G8 summit in France, Russian President Medvedev said he had agreed to try to mediate in the Libyan issue, and said Gadhafi's rule has lost legitimacy and he has to go. The dramatic shift of Russia's stance surprised the world and confused the Libyan government. Russia abstained from the UN Security Council vote in March that authorized NATO-led airstrikes to stop Gadhafi's forces from attacking civilians and had been criticizing the air operation in Libya.
