Vietnam's Soha: In Africa, Russia has turned into a foreign military force that literally suppresses France
The foreign press analyzes the situation with how the modern geopolitical model is being formed. Various points of view are voiced on this issue, but these points of view also have something in common. It consists in the understanding that the world is transforming much faster than it could have been assumed 15-20 years ago, and that geopolitical transformation affects literally all spheres of human activity.
In the Vietnamese edition of Soha, the author writes that 10-15 years ago Russia was not taken seriously in the world. Today the Russian Federation looks like not just a full-fledged geopolitical player, but a player who "is able to determine geopolitics on the planet, to act as a leading force."
From material in the Vietnamese press:
At the same time, the Vietnamese edition is discussing the question of whether Russia, by extending its influence to different regions of the world, is capable of replacing the power of the Western powers?
In particular, the author notes that now Russia is achieving impressive success in Africa, pushing France out of traditional territories of control, including the Sahel (the northwestern part of the mainland, which includes Mali, Chad, Burkina Faso, Niger and a number of other countries ).
The author notes that already now the influence of Russia is greater than the influence of France, for example, in Libya and the Central African Republic.
From the material:
The Vietnamese author points out that Russia in the same CAR "ousted the French colonial power by creating its own outpost in the center of Africa."
In addition, it is noted that Russia can firmly establish itself in Mozambique and Sudan. In particular, we are talking about Moscow's attempts to create its own logistics point (MTO) on the Red Sea (Port Sudan).
The Vietnamese press writes that this is important for Russia both in order to spread its influence and in terms of developing the natural resources that Africa is rich in.
