The Libyan crisis began in 2011. Then, during an armed coup d’état, Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown, which entailed the creation of a dual power in the country. So, in Tripoli, with the support of the West, the so-called Government of National Accord was formed, which refused to recognize the Libyan parliament in the city of Tobruk, which nominated General Haftar to the post of commander-in-chief.Germany told why Russia and China do not stoop to rivalry
