Foreign media are publishing reports about another anti-French coup on the African continent - now in the Congo

There is information about another coup on the African continent. Following Niger and Gabon, the president was allegedly overthrown in the Republic of the Congo (not to be confused with the DRC - Democratic Republic of the Congo). Like Niger and Gabon, the Republic of the Congo for a long time remained virtually completely controlled by France. The authorities of this country were also largely controlled from Paris. However, now the best times have come for Paris in this regard.

It is reported that the military has taken power in Congo. Moreover, as in Niger, this was done by members of the personal presidential guard, opposing French control.



Foreign media claim that the President of the Republic of Congo, 79-year-old Denis Sassou Nguesso, has left the country and headed to the United States. The official application at the moment is “to participate in a meeting of the UN General Assembly.”

It is alleged that the Congolese military has already taken control of all key administrative buildings in the capital, Brazzaville.

The Republic of Congo is a country in western Africa with a population of about 5,3 million people, about half of whom are Christians. In terms of GDP per capita, it ranks 140th in the list of countries in the world. President Sassou Nguesso has ruled the country since 1979. The republic gained formal independence from France only in 1960. After this, a series of coups d'etat began, many of which are believed to have been carried out with the participation of Western intelligence services.

The main income is oil exports. The Republic of the Congo has access to the sea and is part of OPEC.

If the military in Congo retains power, it will be another defeat for France on the African continent in the past few months.

Meanwhile, Congo's communications minister claims that foreign media reports about the coup are untrue. According to him, everything is calm in the country. Although there were problems with the Internet in the Congo. The minister does not comment on this, nor does he say whether he himself is actually in the country.

          There are two countries in Africa called Congo. Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and simply the Republic of the Congo (ROC). It's too early to cut someone laughing
          The stuffing was made by the French publication LesNews. It reported that while the Congolese president was visiting New York, the mutinous army seized key installations in the capital. And the leader of the rebels is the head of the presidential guard, Serge Oboa.
          Shortly after the first reports, Congolese Minister of Communications Thierry Mungala published an official denial on the social network X/Twitter. He wrote that everything is calm in the country and there are no coups observed.

          We assure public opinion of the prevailing calm and invite people to calmly go about their business, the minister wrote.

        It is unlikely, unless of course these are US proteges; it is not profitable for the Americans to undermine oil prices now. Most likely, as in Gabon, there is a change of owners. “A kind word with a gun is always better than just a kind word.”

        wanted to make slaves out of “black” people

        The only major European power that did not participate in this process [of slavery] were the Russians. The Russians did not want to make slaves out of black people. And those of you who need to start studying a little Russian history should know that Russian poets come first. Whom they call the father of their literature - the black man - Pushkin. And to this day in the Orthodox Church they venerate the black Madonna and the black Christ. Because Russians know a lot about black people. I am telling this to you because I know that you are sitting in front of your TV screens and absorbing all the propaganda of “now we will go and take the Russians, and the Russians will be defeated, the Russians will be crushed by the Ukrainians, Viva Ukraine.”

        You are so stupid. You people are so stupid. You people are so stupid that you didn’t listen to the propaganda. I applaud you. Because the vast majority of people absorb it. And they have a very short memory. Russians have been waging war since the XNUMXth century. And they never lost. They only lost minor skirmishes. They were constantly attacked. But the Russians have always been able to repel those who wanted to destroy the Russians. Today is no different.

          As for not losing wars - the Crimean in the mid-19th century and the Russian-Japanese, and it should be noted that the heroic imperial fleet with a glorious history was destroyed by the Japanese fleet, whose officers were the first generation of the fleet, trained by the British.

        If we assume that the Russian Federation is simply throwing out its rulers, and does not particularly intend to support the new authorities, then why not? In my opinion, this would be a reasonable strategy. But yes, Russia was not famous for coups before.

      Congolese authorities deny reports of a coup in the country.
      Earlier, the French publication LesNews reported that while the President of the Republic is in New York, the army is seizing key facilities in the capital, Brazzaville.
      Congo's communications minister wrote on X (formerly Twitter) that everything was calm in the country. LSI AFRICA also called the information about the coup d'etat fake.

      Obviously it's stretching the tires. Indeed, he won’t say that he is a president without a country. And while he is traveling around the UN, the Congolese themselves appointed an IO. So it's unlikely he'll want to go back. By the way, a good topic. Declare that the president is captured by foreign intelligence services, and all his statements are made under pressure, and therefore are invalid until he returns to the country. Well, during the absence the country will be governed by the IO.

      The Republic of the Congo remained virtually completely controlled by France for a long time.

      The author is a storyteller. Sassou Nguesso became president in 1979, was distinguished by his pro-Soviet orientation, was one of the founders of the Marxist-Leninist Congolese Party of Labor (CPT), joined its Central Committee, and in 1970 - the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPT. After 1991, he tried to start perestroika in the Congo, but lost power in the 1992 elections. But later, using the help of dos Santos and the Angolan army, he seized power in the Congo by military means.
      The outcome of the battles in favor of Sassou Nguesso was decided by the military intervention of Angola. President Jose Eduardo dos Santos was interested in the victory of Sassou Nguesso, his ally of the 1980s. Angolan troops occupied key installations in Brazzaville and quickly brought the situation under control. On October 25, 1997, Denis Sassou Nguesso was declared President of the Congo for the second time. His return to power was accompanied by a wave of repressions; in the first six months, about a hundred political executions and a large number of arbitrary arrests were recorded... Formally, democratic and market principles are proclaimed; in reality, political power and control over economic assets, primarily oil, are concentrated in the presidential family and immediate surroundings.

      It is not surprising that a coup was organized against him.

      The President of the Republic of Congo, Denis Sassou Nguesso, is a very great friend of the USSR.

      In 1970, another military junta proclaimed the construction of socialism in the Congo.
      It was headed by Captain Ngouabi, who became president, and under him Sassou Nguesso became the head of state security (later the Minister of Defense) and a member of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPT (Congolese Party of Labor).

      Therefore, President Ngouabi was killed in 1977 by his closest loyal associates, Yombi-Opango became president, but under him Sassou Nguesso retained his post.

      And then Sassou Nguesso overthrew President Yombi-Opango in 1979 and himself became the President of the Congo and Chairman of the CPT, which he still is!

      Here he is with Brezhnev during the signing of a friendship treaty with the USSR:

        Al Manah. And I was lucky, during a flight to Windhoek Namibia in the early 90s, we were supposed to land in Kinshasa DRC, but for some reason it was closed, we landed in Brazaville RK, stood on the runway for an hour and flew to Kinshasa, they didn’t even retract the landing gear, they flew low low, across the Congo River and 20 minutes later we landed in Kinshasa. But on the way back, six months later, we landed in Brazaville. I’ll remember it for the rest of my life. The airport at that time was like a barn. I went to Duty Free, the pipes were burning. On the way back on the way to the plane, suddenly a raven flies out from around the corner and towards me. I’m on one tree, and luckily for me, he’s on another. I carefully climbed down and towards the plane. And there the crew laughed - Andrey, what was it that you rushed into a tree like that? .Told.

      In the 90s, the PPR (fishery production refrigerated ship) of our fleet, fulfilling the food program from the UN, transported us caught horse mackerel around Africa. Quite often they were in Brazzaville. They talked about the tin. The unloading was carried out by blacks and the guards were also blacks. The loader was like, by chance, a box with he drops the fish into the water and takes the big ones into the water and swam to the shore, pushing the box in front of him.. The soldier, without saying a word, comes up to the side, takes the AK off his shoulder and hits him in the head, he is on the bottom and the box with fish is 30 kg of small horse mackerel 22 cm Then he swam, the price for a box was 6-7 $, together with fish and cardboard containers.. The blacks no longer dropped the boxes with fish until the end of unloading. The crew was constant for several years. There was something on the news, there was an AIDS outbreak in Murmansk, 17 cases .And they just arrived from the flight. It turns out that it was a fashion for them to have wives. The wives live in boats along the side, went out on deck to whistle, there were laundry bags or something else, unfinished slave owners.

      Speaking of Africa
      African Invasion of Europe. Over the past three days, approximately 10 people have fled Africa to Italy. And the Western European media talks more and more about migration and less and less about the Eastern Ukrainian conflict. This could be a good or bad sign. Also, do not forget about Corona, on the day when Putin gave the order to liberate Donbass, Corona was defeated. This was the case, at least in Western Europe. Coronavirus was no longer a media topic, only Eastern Ukraine, Putin and actor Zelensky. And what is the topic that is relevant again now? namely Corona. The conflict in eastern Ukraine will end in the fall of the 000rd or at the latest in the spring of the 23th.

      Before Coronavirus and further African revolutions end the war in eastern Ukraine, there is still much to be done before we get there. for example, American and German cruise missiles and constant attacks by Ukrainian drones. And of course the fighting at the front.
