To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether the Government plans to introduce (a) additional sanctions and (b) other measures in relation to (i) the Russian Wagner Group and (ii) other groups operating in Libya in violation of international law.
15 June 2020
The UK is deeply concerned about reports of Russian Wagner Group personnel and other external actors operating in Libya. We take seriously violations of International Humanitarian Law and breaches of sanctions, including the UN arms embargo. We continue to stress to all states the necessity of complying with and enforcing international law. The UK carefully considers all reports of sanctions breaches, including the reports of the UN Panel of Experts, and regularly reviews sanctions measures.
