Analyst from Poland: Russia can play a positive role too, for example Africa

29

Russia has joined other powers seeking to increase their influence in Africa. But it should not act in the same way as in Europe, because the negotiating position of African leaders has never been as strong as it is today.


This opinion was expressed in an interview for WP Magazyn by Dr. Jedzhei Cherep, a Polish expert on African policy.

The continent is attractive to foreign investors for a number of reasons. The economies of African countries are developing at a rapid pace, the continent has rich reserves of raw materials. At the same time, the population is growing rapidly - it is estimated that in thirty years, every fourth inhabitant of the planet will be African.

The analyst notes that African leaders are seeing a growing number of states lining up to them. China, the United States and former colonial countries have long been active on the "black continent". And in the last decade, they have also been joined by three new players: Russia, Turkey and the United Arab Emirates. African countries are getting more room for maneuver and are waiting to see who will give more.

According to the Polish analyst, Russia is positioning itself as a country that helps African countries gain independence from their former metropolises. China and Turkey also play on an anti-colonial note, proud of the continent's absence of a colonial past.

Cherep believes that Russia usually begins cooperation with African states from the military sphere, then develops and produces raw materials, and only then the Kremlin begins to think about long-term investments. Thus, according to the Polish analyst, Moscow first of all tries to "fill its pockets."

At the same time, he emphasizes that Russia's actions do Africa not only harm. Take the Central African Republic. The Russians, according to Dr. Skull, helped stabilize and negotiate a better peace agreement in stories of this state.

Thanks to them, the CAR is now a relatively safe country.

The Russians have provided invaluable assistance to Africa in the treatment of Ebola, and also support the fight against jihadists, who are a global threat.

As the analyst notes, although Poland is not used to this, Russia can play a positive role.

          Well, what kind of wording is this: "for help". As if you are not living in the 21st century.
          It is necessary to formulate "for interfering in domestic politics"

          Turkey also plays on an anti-colonial note, proud of lack of colonial past on the continent.
          fool fool Well, if this is an analyst ... For me, just ignorance of the history of Turkey and another attempt by the Poles to pull an owl onto the globe.

        As in my opinion - so this article is intended accentuate attention of Polish the hosts (USA) for such an "omission"! At least after reading the article in the original - this is exactly the feeling that arises!

      it is estimated that in thirty years, one in four people on the planet will be African.
      fool
      Already counted ..... In Russia by 1940 there will be 400 million people. And then what to do, wars. request
      And Africa has the same scenario prepared for war, epidemics, famine, water shortages.

    A very dubious "honor" for Russia ... In this "hotbed of infection" again our specialists will restore order and build "asuanas", and corporations will collect the "cream" ??! ...
    The "Polish expert" is clearly exaggerating the attractiveness of the African "paradise for investors" ... Perhaps, the domestic "Sir Matterson" can play in private foreign policy.

      clearly exaggerates the attractiveness of the African "investor paradise"

      hi There, indeed, for a long time, since the time of colonization, everything has been divided, and what remains of value is to snatch the "friend C" from the tenacious clutches of unscientific fiction.

      example - Africa

      The "404" clinic has long been comparing themselves to Gabon. Are we there? Some "domestic" defective managers are already saying straight out: "Look how badly they live" in / on "and Africa ..." Are there really no other, more worthy, "landmarks" for the richest country? Rejoice that "a little more beautiful than a monkey" -

      A very dubious "honor" for Russia ...

    Russia is not hot because of this. The business of the West drags everything from Africa to the metropolis, for its wealth and power. And our business too, because children need to be taught, yachts to buy, mistresses and houses must be somewhere to brag!
    Won your country first developed, mastered! In the Far East, in some regions, the price of electricity is on Mars. There are plenty of our own resources, but we are not developing them, we are investing in Africa. People slowly began to flee from the distant
