Germany learned about Russia's capabilities to create military bases in Africa

Russia can establish its military bases on the territory of six African states at any time. This is stated in a confidential document of the German Foreign Ministry, German media write.


The document of the German Foreign Ministry "exposes suspicious plans" of Russia on the African continent. It is reported to be dated last fall.

It is noted that Russia in Africa is promoting its interests through military cooperation with regimes, many of which are "dictatorial." According to the German Foreign Ministry, since 2015, Moscow has signed documents on military cooperation with 21 countries, although before it was only four.

The drafters of the document claim that Russia "on a contractual basis guaranteed" the right to establish military bases in the following African states: CAR (Central African Republic), Egypt, Eritrea, Madagascar, Mozambique and Sudan.

In addition, the Russian military, where in secrecy and where openly, train the military personnel of African countries. Many African military personnel are trained at the universities of the Russian Ministry of Defense. Russian military companies, in particular PMC Wagner, are also training the military.

At the same time, in many countries, it is not only the official army of Russia that is involved and participates in preparation for long-term deployment. First of all, the stake is placed on private armies, for example, the "Wagner Group"

- the document says.

Also, according to German analysts, Russia ranks first in arms deliveries to Africa (37,6%), followed by the United States with 16%, followed by France with 14% and China with 9%.

Thus, the German experts sum up, "Putin's Russia" gives African dictators security guarantees against "color revolutions."

Some African nations perceive Russia "on an equal footing with the United States" - this is one of the main goals of the Putin regime striving for "the former greatness"

they add.

      Well, one or two bases in Africa will come in handy ... At least the very possibility of preparing and delivering a bombing strike at any point in half a day has a significant impact on politics.

    Africa is already economically in China's gentle hands.
    China is building infrastructures, developing deposits,
    leases land and brings suitcases with dollars to dictators.
    With this money, the dictators pay off the owners of PMCs.
    But now, I'm afraid, if someone encroaches on Chinese companies, then
    they will have to deal with the Chinese UDC and destroyers.

      Come on. The clever and sagacious Chinese have invested 70 yards in Venezuela. The results are simply brilliant. The Venezuelan economy just blooms and smells. And there are no UDCs or destroyers on the horizon. And I bet that even a trace of them will not be when Maduro and the company are taken away handcuffed to the New York District Court for drug trafficking

        You probably know how investment funds work?
        Investing billions in various startups and little-known companies?
        10-1 out of 2 investments pay off, but the profit compensates them with interest
        losses in the rest. The Chinese do the same. They are smart and discerning
        without quotes. And you will soon see the results in Italy,
        economically affected by the epidemic.
        Whether the EU will give 200 billion is a question. More likely from the Chinese, but
        Not for free.

        Yes indeed! Something about the Russian media - about Venezuela over the past year - not a word! Apparently, they did it there, no matter what, Overhaul !!! Where are all the pro-Kremlin hosts of Sunday's programs? Where is all the PROPAGANDA ?! Together they shut up and are silent in a rag! Why's that? From great success?

      The Chinese are simple-minded people, they act according to the law. And for the United States, the law is not written.
      The Chinese even filmed a film of their brave soldiers rescuing the Chinese from Yemen after it was recognized that they had become too entrenched there. Only they were not rescued from the US Navy, but from the locals.

      Oh yes, that's just how I see how the Chinese UDC and aircraft carriers prevent Russia from doing their own thing in Africa, well, like, they want to argue with Russia, and they don't know that their 2 army will be torn into rags, in the Kwantung Army on mainland, namely on the territory of present-day China, there were 000 people, and in China this is well remembered, over 000 yapps died, 1 surrendered

        The Japanese, Kwantung Army was rolled out by the super-powerful SA, which passed and won a fierce fight with European fascism. The modern RF, resources and a sufficient number of trained, mind you in the training order of peacetime and not a real battle, there are no troops. The economy is inferior to the Chinese by orders of magnitude. The war itself has become so different in comparison with the mid 40s of the 20th century. Mass heroism will not work here, and it will not, for obvious reasons. We will lose an ordinary war to the Chinese with a bang. Only SNAO. This constrains the neighbor, otherwise the entire Far East would have been part of the PRC.

    "Thus, the German experts sum up," Putin's Russia "gives African dictators security guarantees from" color revolutions. " Glue the label of a dictator to the West as a dictator for the West, but guarantees against color revolutions (in fact, pro-Western coups) infuriate the West the most.

    And Germany supplies the Turkish regime with weapons.
    Despite the fact that Turkish troops illegally invaded the territory of several states.
    Not to mention the fact that the Turks, as the legacy of the Ottoman Empire, did not recognize the facts of the genocide.
    Well, the Germans themselves should generally be silent in a rag for another hundred years.

    Russian military companies, in particular PMC Wagner, are also training the military.

    Am I the only one sick of the fact that "PMC Wagner" has become a "proverb"?
    Wherever you go, this PMC is everywhere.
    Their personnel should be living, at least in the area of ​​a cropped division, in order to keep up everywhere and take part in everything.

    The USSR, at one time, trained thousands of gunners, pilots, sailors and God knows who else in military schools.
    This is normal practice.
    For use of Soviet weapons could only be those who were taught.
    Both the Americans, the French and the British accepted citizens of both African and Asian countries for training.
    And they will accept.
    But the training of special forces is a different story.
    Although Russia can do that. Our special forces tea is not in the last place. On the contrary.

    It is not clear why the Germans were so alarmed?
    Usually the hubbub in the west rises when they themselves are "hot" picked up.

      Immediately everywhere and at once they interfere in everything, and at the same time.

    Do the Germans themselves want to take a place in the sun of Africa with all the ensuing consequences? Remember, when Germany was late for the "division" of colonies in the late 1870th - early 1914th centuries as a result of the fact that there was no united Germany, and it was formed only by XNUMX, after the unification of German lands, then by XNUMX the First World War was unleashed. which was started by Germany. And after the First World War, Hitler came to power in Germany and started the Second World War.
    The Americans were about to withdraw their troops from Germany. We did it in the 1990s. And what to expect from this country, from this unpredictable (and at the same time very predictable) people? History teaches us to be very attentive to all statements that come from Germany. No matter how it turns out that we will have a state on earth that started three world wars.

        The depth of my mind is not for you to determine!
        There was a tendency in the Union to "help" the local leaders if they declared that they were taking the socialist path of development.
        How many bad loans were written off (if memory does not change in thousandths the last debts of GDP were written off)
        At one time there was an anecdote: - they say in Africa they do not finish.
        - and it is possible that they do not finish, let them send us!
        Weapons, training, infrastructure cost a lot of money! Content too. Where is the guarantee that "local leaders will not change" priorities "and will not have to" leave "again?
        This money could be poured into the economy.
        By and large, I am "equally divided", I am not from Russia, according to the old "Union" memory I am writing.
        All this is your headache!

    So, Russian PMCs have already become a "common knowledge". Is it okay that, according to Russian law, such companies are classified as organized crime groups, with all that it implies? We have a private security company, but it's just a completely different flight of a bird.
