Swiss television channel SRF reported that Russia is now actively strengthening its position in Africa. The success of the Russian Federation is connected with the mistakes made by Western countries.
It is specified that America has long treated Africa “from the position of a stepmother.” In particular, the current US President Joe Biden does not include this continent among his priorities.
As the publication notes, the West expects democracy and the fight against corruption from African countries. At the same time, the leaders of the countries located on this continent perceive this as an encroachment on the sovereignty of their countries.
Apart from other things, Africans to this day are very grateful to the Soviet Union for military and financial support in their liberation war.
