48 members of the Libyan House of Representatives (HoR) denied and denounced statements said by the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov saying there were Russian forces in Libya upon the HoR request.

The HoR members said Lavrov's statements are contradictory to those of the Russian President Vladimir Putin who denied presence of Russian forces in Libya.

"We at the HoR haven't discussed or voted on a request of Russian forces in Libya. We haven't called for Russian intervention or any other country's. We urge all foreign forces to leave Libya immediately without any preconditions." The statement says.
