Statement by the President of Russia on the situation in Libya

February 25, 2011

Moscow is deeply concerned about the events taking place in Libya.

The numerous victims cited in media reports are cause for profound sorrow. Russia condemns the use of force against civilians sanctioned by the country’s leadership.

We resolutely call on Libya’s current authorities and all responsible political figures in the country to show restraint in order to prevent further deterioration of the situation and deaths of civilians. Such acts, if they continue, will be qualified as crimes with all the ensuing consequences under international law.
