В Italy has arrested a ship that was allegedly transporting Russian drones

Italian authorities detained a ship that was allegedly transporting Russian drones for the military in Libya. The arrest of the ship caused international interest, because it violates international UN sanctions.

The incident occurred when the ship was sailing to Benghazi, the main port of Libya. Italian media reports that weapons worth millions of dollars were found on board. The operation was carried out at the request of the United States, which expressed concern about increasing Russian influence in the region. In particular, there are suspicions that Russia may be trying to establish a military base in Tobruk, in eastern Libya.

According to Corriere della Sera, the ship MSC Arina left China on April 30 this year. However, in response to journalists' inquiries, MSC representatives said they had no information about the confiscation of their containers.

Details of the cargo that was on board remain unknown, but according to media speculation, we are talking about Russian unmanned aerial vehicles. This incident calls into question the ability of the international community to control the supply of weapons to conflict zones, in particular within the framework of compliance with sanctions imposed by the United Nations.
