Think Africa, think!

On December 13-15, Washington hosted the US-Africa Leaders Summit – a pompous event full of very lucrative offers with the participation of African heads of state.

On the first results of the US-Africa Leaders Summit

The Ukrainian conflict and the nuclear threat

In the last few months the USA and its European allies (or de facto satellites), and US-controlled media, have been persistently and even obsessively speculating about Russia’s alleged plans to use tactical nuclear weapons in the Ukraine conflict. One of the most recent of these provocations was a story published in…

Russia-West: semantic hallucinations

The end of October was hot. In the early hours of the morning of October 29, Ukrainian aerial drones and underwater drones attacked the Russian naval base in Sevastopol.

African gas instead of Russian: Dreams and Reality

The conflict in Ukraine, which entered an open military phase in February 2022, has aggravated the issue of energy supplies to Europe and, at the instigation of the Europeans, the replacement of Russian gas with “blue fuel” from other countries. The latest climax of the discussion of these problems was the international terrorist act in October of this year…

New US strategy in Africa: serious program or another bluff?

On October 12, just a couple of months before the loudly announced US-Africa summit, the White House released a rather lengthy document, “The US Strategy toward Sub-Saharan Africa”.

Japan in Africa

FUM195343

And at first, expectations of the event were fulfilled. More than…

Africa is Waiting

AFR

Over the last few days, a number of interesting but apparently unrelated events have occurred which are, in fact, a sign of important changes in international relations.

The Battle of Narratives, and Africa’s Food Crisis

BORE

On July 11 Josep Borrell, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, declared that, for now, the EU is not winning the “global battle of narratives”. But five months have not yet passed… He then again repeated his time-worn claim that Europe is on the side of truth – although many countries are inclined to disagree. In other words, Josep Borrell can…

War and Food. What Does It Have to Do With Africa?

After Senegalese President Macky Sall’s visit to Russia on June 3 and Vladimir Putin’s extended interview published on the same day, in which he declared Russia’s readiness to do everything in its power to ensure the export of Ukrainian grain, the subject seemed to have been exhausted.
