57

Russia continues to supply arms to the Central African Republic. Another batch of rifle weapons arrived at Bangui airport.


The Russian Ministry of Defense supplied the CAR government troops with a third batch of small arms, which included Kalashnikov assault rifles, light machine guns and grenade launchers, sniper rifles, pistols, grenades and ammunition. It is noted that this is the largest batch of weapons transferred to the military of the Central African Republic, it included 5 thousand AK assault rifles, not counting the rest of the weapons.

As stated by the Russian ambassador to Bangui Vladimir Titorenko, whose words are quoted RIA News, the transfer of weapons took place at Bangui airport in the presence of the CAR president and defense minister. Russia was represented by Major General Oleg Polguyev.

All weapons are transferred free of charge, before that two batches of small arms and 20 BRDM-2 were delivered to the country. No UN Security Council permission is required for the transfer of small arms.

In the fall of 2018, it was reported that the Russian Ministry of Defense would create on the territory of the Central African Republic its representative office at the Ministry of National Defense of the country, whose tasks would include resolving issues of military and military-technical cooperation, training Russian specialists of the CAR military in the operation, repair and use of equipment and weapons supplied to it as well as the restoration of the army of the republic. There is a tactical training center in the CAR, where Russian instructors train local military personnel. The center operates in the city of Berengo.

In December 2020, the Russian Foreign Ministry confirmed the information about sending 300 military instructors to the CAR to train the republic's government army. Today, there are about 500 Russian military instructors in the country, and it is not planned to increase their number yet.

      In this, in my opinion, not, but the second batch included, only not rifles, but Mosin carbines of the 1944 model with a fixed bayonet. How much was delivered was not reported, but the delivery of carbines was confirmed by the Russian ambassador to the CAR. It was in October 2019. hi

              One can agree, but with a proviso - Egypt, or rather, its authorities did not pretend, but really followed a socialist path, albeit a specific one. And the change of Nasser to Sadat did not lead to an immediate "we changed our minds." And the privatization of the Suez Canal did not happen. So the example is not very good, although it counts for "offhand" with reservations.
              But you said:

      Don't tell me ... the USSR bought a lot of things there, for the same weapon, etc.
      Someone is still remembered from the libertarian government in the 90s. In his memoirs he wrote that it was necessary to raise the USSR treaties, we bought half of Africa there, deposits of land, etc. But the power there is constantly changing .. Perhaps this weapon goes just to those who will give us access to property, the times of the USSR Or compensation from those who rob everything there, after us ..
      In Angola there is definitely a landing site for our "Burans" .. Well, it was planned, it was very convenient, because they wanted to put them into production, but ..

        Exactly? Sure? For landing Buranov

        Not in Angola, but in Somalia (Berbera, runway 05/23, once the longest on the African continent, 4140 m)

        It was built in the mid-70s for the needs of strategic aviation and military aviation.

        It was never used for its intended purpose - in 1977, Somalia broke off relations with the USSR and forced our military to leave, giving 48 hours to collect

        Subsequently, the Berbera airport runway was included by NASA in the list of Space Shuttle emergency landing sites.

        That's the whole story, without ugrykats and fairy tales

          Russia is completely free for political reasons, it will not get anything, what kind of Russian business will come? What can a weak country control? The reason for the free distribution under the guise of solving super important geopolitical issues may also be in the fact that blacks will sell these weapons to third parties and share them. By the way, they give a good weapon, albeit an old one, in contrast to the same AK of modern production, the quality of which is disgusting. By the way, China does not give anything to anyone for free, only secured loans, and China has an incomparably greater influence in Africa.
