    MUNICH (Sputnik) - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s allegations that Moscow at an official level facilitates the Libyan war through Russian private military companies operating in the North African country are not true, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Saturday.

    "This does not correspond to reality and the real state of affairs," Bogdanov told reporters on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, when asked to comment on the claims.

    Earlier in the day, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in an interview with NTV broadcaster that "Russia is currently managing the war there at the highest level". He added that Ankara would continue to support Libyan Prime Minister Fayez Sarraj's internationally recognised government.
