Libya on verge of civil war - Medvedev
Moscow - Libya is on the verge of civil war, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Thursday, in one of the starkest warnings yet by a world leader over the situation in the country.
"This is an extreme situation," he told Russia's Emergencies Minister Sergei Shoigu, according to state news agency ITAR-TASS.
"Libya was and is on the verge of civil war and our main task was to save our people there [Russian citizens]", he said praising the operation to evacuate Russians from Libya.
"During such events [such as in Libya] there is usually a complete disorganisation in the management of the state. And this is what we are seeing," he added.
