MOSCOW, March 14. /TASS./. The Kremlin has no information on the alleged deployment of Russian forces and unmanned aerial vehicles in Egypt near the border with Libya, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

"We do not have such information," the Kremlin spokesman said, commenting on a Reuters report.

The news agency Reuters reported earlier, citing diplomatic sources that Russia appeared to have deployed a 22-member special forces unit to an airbase at Sidi Barrani in western Egypt near the border with Libya.

The agency’s sources also claimed that Russia had used another Egyptian base farther east in Marsa Matrouh in early February.

Russia’s Defense Ministry has rejected this information as untrue.
