In Mali, the military arrested the president and prime minister of the country

40

The state of Mali is restless again. In reports from this African state, it is said that the military carried out arrests of Prime Minister Moktar Ouan and President Ba Ndau. Among those arrested was the country's defense minister, Suleiman Dukur.


According to the latest information, the arrests of the president, the prime minister and representatives of the government by the military were carried out immediately after the signing of the Ba Ndau decree on the new cabinet of ministers. Several former ministers were dismissed due to corruption. This is the interpretation in the official document. The military did not agree with this state of affairs.

Ba Ndau was proclaimed president in September last year. His announced term of office is 18 months. But before the end of his term, Ndau, apparently, will not finish working.

Local media report that a large number of military and equipment, including armored vehicles, have appeared in the capital of the country - the city of Bamako. Major government buildings are controlled by police officers who are loyal to the forces opposing the current authorities.

They expressed their opinion on this matter at the UN. Traditionally, concern has been expressed about what is happening in Mali, and calls have been made to release the arrested Malian politicians. The US, Britain, Germany and the Union of African States have demanded the release of Ba Ndau and the others who were arrested.

According to the latest information, President Ndau and others arrested were transported to the Kati military base, located near Bamako.

Mali today is not fully controlled by the authorities. There are territories in the country controlled by terrorists. In Mali, there is a French military contingent with "allies" (including military personnel from the Baltic states) who declaratively fight terrorism, but there have been no real victories over the militants in recent years.

In terms of GDP per capita, Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world (ranking 168th). However, the country has impressive deposits of minerals - primarily gold, the export of which accounts for almost a quarter (23%) of all incomes of the country's economy. At the same time, the illegal mining market even surpasses these figures.

    In any country in the world, except for the EU and the United States (there, all normal people from the army are being ousted by oligophrenics with various mental disorders), the military is the most sane people - once a civilian has been arrested, then this is how it should be!

        No, everything is much worse. So this Mali of yours is in full swing like a good half of Africa. This means that the society in this Mali, in principle, is not capable of existing in the form of a state and nothing but wars and extremism in the next decade Mali does not shine.

      Well, here you, as a military man, tell us why then Yeltsin was not arrested?
      Wasn't it necessary?

      I remember that you talked about the dashing 90s, they say, yes it was hard, but you need to serve obediently and not rock the boat. Because going against the authorities is the worst crime. Did I understand you correctly? But then you contradict yourself.

                Indeed, there is nothing to look for from the word at all. The civilian population produced various weapons and products with clothing for their soldiers, men, and they ended up in the 90s. cowardly and stupid sheep unable to fulfill the oath and protect the state ... but it was necessary if the gebe sold out. Since then, there is no hope for any shoulder straps, so do not excuse yourself, it is your own fault! negative

Now retired! There are many things I don't understand (most likely even more than I think) - but I have something to compare with! hi

                        If you do not understand about that time, then include elementary logic. There was a referendum, where the majority of citizens gave carte blanche to their security officials to preserve the Union, and therefore to preserve the socio-political system, i.e. socialism. So it was necessary to arrest the entire elite immediately after the so-called "Belovezhskaya agreements" on the collapse of the Union and press liberal skakuas across Moscow, which then went in chorus like for the market and down with the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Everything! But no one did it .... As for the flag of the USSR Navy, this is as a tribute to my relatives who fought and served in the Navy ... also as a designation of my political orientation. And in my service and work, everything was connected precisely with the fleet. If your misunderstanding concerns today's time, then it is appropriate to recall the ancients - the one who betrayed once, will betray the second time.

But the question is rhetorical - I am extremely negative about Yeltsin and the time of his reign, but you probably forgot what the army was doing throughout the 90s, while you portrayed in the rear, as now, on the Internet, a fighter against a bloody regime. ..laughing

    The tradition is fresh ... although no, not fresh ...

    If you look objectively, and not through rose-colored glasses, then in any structure there are people with "inferior rationality" although they are more often called words starting with Him \ Pr \ Id \ Yes .... and again, if you look objectively, then there are such people and at the "bottom" and "at the top".

    In general, if you look subjectively, in my opinion, such "uprisings" are a sign that there are critical problems in the state and at the same time there is no "system of checks and balances" ..
