The Russian armed forces, which have been monitoring the situation in Libya via satellite since the beginning of the unrest, cast a shadow on Western reports of what is going on in Libya. According to Western media (BBC, Al Jazeera) on February 22 the Libyan Air Force would have attacked the rebel city of Benghazi, this attack never really happened, say the Russians now.
The La Haine article also includes a video of a massacre at Bahrain (real deaths warning) dated Feb 18.
