Military Review

Sending Russian armored vehicles to the CAR has been confirmed

47

Information about the dispatch from the Russian Federation to the Central African Republic of not only 300 Russian military instructors, but also several units of armored vehicles, is confirmed. Previously, information about the Russian military in the CAR appeared on the pages of the French press. Later, the data on military instructors from the Russian Federation was confirmed by the Russian Foreign Ministry.


Now the country's officials have commented on the news of the transfer of military equipment to the CAR.

So, in an interview "Russian newspaper" Deputy Defense Minister Alexander Fomin spoke about this. According to him, military equipment was delivered to the Central African Republic in November this year. According to him, we are talking about armored reconnaissance vehicles BRDM-2, the number of which the deputy head of the Russian military department did not name.

It is noted that Russian military instructors are starting to train Central African military personnel.

It should be noted that the situation in the CAR has recently deteriorated significantly due to the formation of an actually armed rebel front by an unregistered candidate. Some time ago, these forces moved to the capital of the country - the city of Bangui.

On the eve of the CAR, elections were held at various levels, including presidential ones. According to local media, the elections were declared valid, without any noticeable violations. The name of the winner of the presidential election has not yet been announced. At the same time, experts believe that it is after the announcement of the election results that hostilities can break out in the country if the "armed opposition" does not abandon this kind of methods of struggle for power.

        Once again, went to the distant approaches to defend the Motherland?

        The price of a military base in Syria turned out to be expensive and even classified. What price are you willing to pay now? After all, the previous price did not seem to bother them.

            Yes. From our Russian pocket. There is no other in the Kremlin. And the whole policy leads to the fact that the people in the end will be robbed to the bone.

            You then (judging by the comments) do not associate yourself with Russia? Just in case, let me remind you the words of Margaret Thacher: "There is no government money. There is taxpayer money."

    So this is understandable. France has its own interests in its former colony, therefore, react painfully to the Russian presence in this country.

      Yes. The French brought a certain Bozize there, who is considered an international criminal by their own Western standards, and began to unleash a civil war. Peacekeepers are still. And they don't give a damn about any international arrest warrants for this character, any sanctions against him imposed by the "international community on the basis of international law" laughing ... It is necessary to stir up the mess and steal diamonds and everything else "on the sly." Well, as usual, like the good old colonial days.
      This is the most profitable option - like the Libyan one. Fatty fish are caught in troubled waters.

        Not so much uranium (this is more to France and its interests), as diamonds ... uranium is difficult to extract / transport (a lot of ore needs to be transported for processing, well, not in the CAR), and we ourselves have enough uranium in reserves and in the booty ...

          We do not have enough uranium, then they would not buy from the Australians and Kazakhs, and the Canadian would not be bought. Have you heard about the railway to Port Sudan? Here on it, then they will carry loads. In this regard, France was squeezed out of the Central African Republic, and it was all these rebellions that were inspired and paid for by the French.

      worried

      The CAR has significant natural resources - deposits of diamonds, uranium, gold, oil, forest and hydropower resources.
      GDP per capita in 2009 - $ 700 (220th place in the world).
      The basis of the economy is agriculture and logging (55% of GDP). Cotton, coffee, tobacco, cassava, yams, millet, corn, bananas are cultivated.
      Industry (20% of GDP) - gold and diamond mining, sawmills, breweries, shoe shops.
      As of 2016 [20], exports amounted to US $ 166 million: Timber and lumber, fruits, cotton and diamonds
      In March 2018, five Russian military and 170 Russian civilian instructors were sent to the CAR to train local military personnel. Russia has also started the implementation of exploration mining concessions in the CAR
      At the end of December 2020, on the eve of the presidential and parliamentary elections, several hundred Russian military and heavy equipment arrived in the CAR

    Taking into account the fact that all the armed forces of the Central African Republic have, according to Wikipedia, 2000 people + 1000 Republican Guards, the number of "instructors" looks more like a military contingent.

    Tallinn University professor Rein Mullerson told the story of a meeting between Russian Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev and former US President Richard Nixon in the early 1990s. According to him, Kozyrev said at the meeting that "Russia has no national interests, but only universal human interests." In response to these words, Nixon only shook his head and finished his story Mullerson. “This suggests that Nixon has a head. And, unfortunately, Mr. Kozyrev does not. The box is cranial only. But there is no head as such, ”Putin said.
