The Ukrainian Defense Ministry said Khalifa Haftar had visited Moscow and promised to send Libyan volunteers to fight alongside Russia in Ukraine.

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry said it is expected that Russian mercenary group, Wagner, will organize the flights of the Libyan fighters on Russian air force planes.

Meanwhile, Haftar’s private jet, Dassault Falcon-900 P4-RMA, which he uses in most of his travels, landed on March 16 in Moscow coming from the United Arab Emirates and left on March 18 to Austria and then Italy.

Libyan political analyst, Noman Benothman, who was once Haftar’s advisor and turned later to become his opponent, said Haftar’s sons were on the private jet to Moscow which they visited three times in the last ten days, according to his sources.
