The CAR does not exclude the appearance of the Russian military base

The Minister of Defense of the Central African Republic Marie Noel Coyara did not rule out the appearance of a Russian military base on the territory of the state. She said this in an interview with RIA News.


The CAR does not exclude the appearance of the Russian military base


The Central Asian defense minister explained that in August 2018, an intergovernmental agreement on military cooperation was signed between Russia and the CAR, the result of which today is the training center in Barengo, where Russian military instructors are training military personnel of the republic’s army. At the same time, although there has not yet been any talk about creating a fully-fledged military base of Russia in the CAR, the possibility of deploying it is envisaged by a framework agreement between the states. If the authorities of the countries decide to deploy a military base on the territory of the Central African Republic, then it will be created.

If the presidents, as supreme commanders, as leaders of the nation, decide to deploy the base, then our countries will come to this, well, we, as ministers, will already implement it
- said the Minister of Defense of the Central African Republic, adding that the army training center in Berengo cannot be considered a Russian military base, but some media perceive it that way.

The situation in the Central African Republic aggravated at the end of 2013, when clashes between militants of the Islamist Seleka group and Christian rebels opposing them occurred. At present, the situation in the country is gradually stabilizing, including with the help of Russia, which has supported the legitimate government of the republic at a negotiating level.

Here, now they have taken up Gabon. And there we need a point of power, so that mattresses have fewer opportunities to "ignite" Africa in the manner of BV.

          State in Central Africa, landlocked. It borders in the northeast with Sudan, in the east with South Sudan, in the south with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in the southwest with the Republic of Congo, in the west with Cameroon, in the north with Chad. One of the most sparsely populated countries in Africa, one of the poorest countries in the world.

            You are right if you take the statistics figures. But!
            Since 1930, diamonds have been mined, most of which (about 40%) are jewelry. The main deposits, mainly loose, are located in the forehead and Sanga river basins, as well as in the southeast in the Bria region.

            Uranium deposit was opened by the French Atomic Energy Commissariat in 1959 in the town of Bakuma in the north of the country. Uranium reserves are estimated at 10-16 thousand tons.

            Gold ore occurrences have been discovered in many areas. Alluvial deposits dominate, confined to annual valleys, but do not have industrial significance.

            Iron ore deposit opened in 1948 in Bogoieni, 120 km northeast of Bangui. Reserves amount to 3,5 million tons, and the average iron content is 63%. In red, there are practically no harmful impurities.

            In 1976, reconnaissance of an artificial Earth satellite recorded in the southern regions of the country, near the cities of Boal, Bosembele, Sibyu, Bambari, the presence of a large iron ore deposit called the Bangui anomaly.

            Also signs of copper ore deposits found in the southeast of the country, on the northern slope of the Bongo Range. This field is considered a continuation of the famous Sudanese middeme basin.

            The subsoil of the Central African Republic also contains ores of nickel, chromium, tin, and graphite. Various deposits of building materials, including the most famous Fatima lime deposit near Bangui (reserves are estimated at 3 million tons).

        Well, this is a minus by the way. Another crisis of relations with partners and it will be very difficult to deliver:
        - North Chad, what France says, it will do it, they will ask to close the sky = close.
        - East Sudan, the country lives on Saudi money, leases an army to the Saudis to fight in Yemen. Well, in general, they will do what they say.
        - West Cameroon, another non-independent country, that a big white man will say, they will.
        - The southwest of 2 is under-Congo, but again, the Americans were about to set up their base to control both Congo and Gabon. The site is busy.

        The result, again, if asked, to ban BTA flights is easy. This is common and regulated. Any country may prohibit the passage of military transport boards of another country over its territory. On your own. Similarly, the reception of ships with cargo and delivery.

        Therefore, it would be ideal to have a country with a small, but access to the sea / ocean. This makes the base and bridgehead stable. For prohibiting the passage of ships in international waters is impossible, without serious consequences.

                    I did not write that key. But very important. Since the factories transferred to
                    The Urals have not yet begun to produce tanks, and those tanks that were near the borders in the 41st ceased to exist. Therefore, during the counterattack near Moscow, the British tanks Valentine and Matilda made up a large percentage of armored vehicles supporting infantry. The Germans, by the way, during this period, the tanks ran out. The battle was mainly between the advancing Soviet infantry, supported by tanks, and German infantry, supported by anti-tank artillery.

                For you only about "free" !!!!
                Historian Lebedev writes that during the Great Patriotic War, the USSR received more than 18 thousand aircraft from the USA (including fighter aircraft, “aerocobra”, “kitty-hawk”, “tomahawk”), 12 thousand tanks. Communication equipment: 100 thousand kilometers of telephone wires, 2 million phones. Groceries: 15 million pairs of boots, more than 50 thousand tons of leather for shoes; as well as more than a million tons of food and supplies; several thousand steam locomotives, tank cars, locomotives and self-loading wagons. More than 300 thousand tons of explosives and petroleum products were delivered to them at the front; and military-technical plants received copper and bronze, aluminum and special steel. The total volume of US supplies amounted to about 11 billion US dollars. According to the law on Lend-Lease, it was only necessary to pay for what had survived during the war. Agreements on the total payment amount began in 1948.

                    When China will squeeze Russia sometime in the future with the Far East - who will help? Venezuela? Iran? smile
                    Again we will have to "negotiate" with America about a new Lend Lease ...

                    You are very far "looking". Everyone is tired of the USA already. So we will be friends with China for a long time.

              WWII - LendLiz, the Volga famine - ships with food. The First Five-Year Plan - 500 factories built by the Americans.

              Behind everything, behind this, stood the clearly expressed political interests of America, and Russian gold !!! hi

                Read how much the Americans and the Nansen Fund took during the famine in the Volga region, and how much the Soviet government allocated for this. If you read the memoirs of G. HOOVER, then he did not hide that one of the goals was to show the population that it is possible to live well without communism, which, in principle, they achieved at least a little. There are very interesting photos of those times when they met Ara workers in settlements. And about the land of Lisa, it was not even paid much. Alexey correctly said above that there is a good series of articles, another land lease, everything is more than detailed there. It's just that we often confuse commercial deliveries of the times and land lease.

    Well, right. But what about the "sauces" that have already entered the BRICS? They, too, would not have our base superfluous.

    "Sauces" often change presidents ...

    They do not change on their own, but a strong neighbor, who does not disdain and direct killings of leaders who are objectionable to them, even in his own! hi

    What a good base the USSR had in Angola. The Cubans trained by us fought as pilots together with Russian flyers. I had to go there. in "VO" I published an article "The Secret War and a Special Assignment". Thanks to the marked one, we lost everything, including the USSR. It's time to go back to Africa.

      that’s the way it is, but in such cases I recall the words of our president, who once said that the presidents in the USA are changing, but there is no politics ... we unfortunately often have a new leader consider it his duty to do the opposite did his predecessor ...

      A landlocked state in Central Africa. It borders in the northeast with Sudan, in the east with South Sudan, in the south with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, in the southwest with the Republic of Congo, in the west with Cameroon, in the north with Chad. One of the most sparsely populated countries in Africa, one of the poorest countries in the world

Now Africa is not taken seriously, but time will pass, and Russia and Africa will rule! The African continent has something to surprise the world military-industrial complex, together with Russia!
