Russian President Vladimir Putin may seek to capitalize on the chaos currently gripping Libya by filling the power vacuum that the U.S.-led NATO alliance has failed to fill since the removal of dictator Moammar Gadhafi nearly six years ago, reports Stars and Stripes, citing analysts.

The report echoed recent assessments by U.S. military officials, noting that Moscow is trying to reestablish Russia as a superpower and extend its geopolitical sphere of influence by undermining the U.S. and other Western powers and capitalizing on the chaos in Libya.

“Even though there would be risks, Russia stands a lot to gain,” Christopher Chivvis, a security analyst with the Rand Corp, told Stars and Stripes. “(Moscow) would be free to shape the battlefield, much like it did in Syria with its support of Assad. Similar conditions exist in Libya.”

Putin’s relationship with a powerful Libyan warlord has been thriving, a development that the news outlet describes as a sign that the Russian leader “sees an opportunity in Libya’s chaos to sideline the West and catapult Moscow into the position of power broker on NATO’s southern flank.”
