I am not sure, but I think Russia and Egypt are on the same side. The warning might be more directed at Turkey, as well as Islamist groups thinking they could use the disorder in Libya to interfere in Egypt in support of Islamists there.

Personally, I think Libya should have been split in two after the civil war, since Tripolitania and Cyrenaica have never really gotten along, and the current dividing line between the Tripoli- and Tobruk-based factions seems as much regional as ideological. But nobody ever asks my opinions on these things, and I am frequently wrong anyway.
