Return of Russia: someone will have to move

16
Subtle on the background of others News There was an African tour of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, during which he visited Angola, Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia. Meanwhile, this is a momentous event, symbolizing our desire to regain lost ground in the region.


When the USSR was, our country had close ties with almost half of the African continent, and had a significant impact on its policies and economy. However, after the collapse of the Union, we removed ourselves from the region and voluntarily surrendered it to other powers. This was largely dictated by economic reasons. We simply did not have the means to maintain African regimes in exchange for their loyalty. And they were not ready to cooperate with us on market conditions.

Everything changed a decade later. Africa began to be viewed not as a springboard for the dissemination of political ideology, but as a pantry regarding the resources available for development.

      China's investment in Africa is 220 billion $, and the Russian Federation 3 billion $. Not seriously.

        Everything has its time. Russia does not go there with war, but with money and pragmatism. And not like Israel, which diligently wants to conquer or slaughter all its neighbors.

        Good morning. You understand very well that this is not even about investments. I think Israel does not need a flaming continent at hand, and everything goes to this.

        Russia goes for resources - it does not need to invest in major projects like China

          there are enough of their resources, so a cosmodrome would be built there! A spaceship is easier to take off from there.

    We agreed with China to work together for our happiness and against the chatter of "partners"

    In Africa, the Chinese managed to gain a foothold. And the Americans, in some places, also have their own interest.

    Yeah. We’ll come back. And the natives will meet us with the sweet potato betel. The Africans, though terrible loafers, are far from fools.

    The fact that we are returning is normal, otherwise the American tumor (and not only them) will finally finish off the continent. Here at the expense of resources - they started up, at home a storehouse, both not developed - and not known.

    Well, what kind of X do we need this Africa to do? It’s necessary to deal with the country, and not bother with other people's heads of fire.
