Russia has accused Libya of running a training center for Syrian rebels battling forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin leveled the allegation during a UN Security Council meeting on March 7.

He told the council that Moscow has information that in Libya “there is a special training center for the Syrian revolutionaries and people are sent to Syria to attack the legal government."

Churkin said that “this activity” is “undermining stability in the Middle East."

Russia has consistently rejected Arab and Western overtures aimed at curbing the bloodshed in Syria that the UN says has killed well over 7,500 people, including many hundreds of children, as Assad's forces counter Arab Spring-style protests and insurrection that broke out a year ago.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon recently expressed alarm at reports coming from the Syrian flash-point city of Homs that suggested Syrian government forces were arbitrarily executing, imprisoning, and torturing people.

It would be understandable if this was mentioned by aboriginal inhabitants of the Aleutian Islands or at least by Chukchi who eat together with the Huskys... but Putin?...

That is hilarious coming from Russia, a state which arms, trains, supports militarily and economically, fights wars on behalf of and conducts ethnic cleansing on behalf of, the separatist groups in South Ossetia, Abkhazia, and Transdenistr, against their lawful (internationally recognized) governments of Georgia and Moldova.
