‘Low and cowardly man who disgraces his country’ – Shugaley responds to Pompeo’s accusations

    The appeal of the sociologist was published on the social media account of one of the activists Alexander Malkevich. The letter mentioned the US Secretary of State’s statement, which he made on December 15. In this statement Mike Pompeo, while speaking about the return of the two Russians from Libya, had called them “agents responsible for undermining Libyan policy”.

    Shugaley’s letter was a response aimed at clarifying the accusations by Pompeo, accusations which were based on neither facts nor evidence. In particular, Maxim Shugaley wanted clarification on whether Pompeo’s statement had specifically referred to Shugaley and his colleague Samer Sueifan.

    “If so, and I do not know about any other Russians detained and released, then I accuse you of lying. And I intend to go to the courts of the United States to prove your lies,” the sociologist stated in his letter.

    Shugaley pointed out that neither he nor his colleague had anything to do with what they were being accused of by Pompeo. Shugaley also promised that “after deeper analysis of information” and in case of no forthcoming apologies and clarifications from the accusing side, he would share all the details with a public audience of the illegal interrogations which both him and his colleague Sueifan had had to endure at the Mitiga prison.

    “In case you do not respond to my appeal, it will mean that you, as a US official, are not responsible for your words. A low and cowardly man who disgraces his country,” Shugaley emphasized.

    Russian sociologists Maxim Shugaley and Samer Sueifan came to Libya at the official invitation of the local authorities. In May 2019, they were captured by RADA terrorists and then taken to Mitiga prison. It is known that the captives were tortured there for a year and a half and had no access to legal protection.

    Diplomats from several countries were involved in the release of the Russian scientists. On December 10, Shugaley and Sueifan finally returned home.
