MOSCOW - Russia warned the West on Wednesday against arming rebels battling Muammar Gaddafi's forces and said Libyans must forge their political future without any outside interference.

They also indicated that as the United States and Europe press for Gaddafi's eventual exit, Moscow does not want to stand aside and watch the West shape a future government of a country where Russia's arms, energy and railway companies had contracts.
