Russia fears that weaponry from the looted Gaddafi arsenals may find its way into the hands of extremists, separatists and terrorists across Africa.

The Kremlin’s Africa envoy Mikhail Margelov spoke about this at an Africa-Russia business forum in Addis Ababa Friday.

He said the Arab Spring had failed to force Russia to revise its relations with the affected countries and expressed hope that no post-revolutionary Arab nation would join a military bloc.
