Russia gives Africa political assurances as a Federation of Russia’s governing party, the United Russia Party (URP), has said it is reaching out to governing parties in Africa and pledged political and economic support against Western pressure by accelerating the Russia-Africa cooperation from a state to party basis.
Russia has already started working on modalities to ensure that its trade commitments with traditional partners remain open despite impediments initiated by the West through sanctions.
The URP through Supreme Bureau Council member Mr Klimov Andrey last week said since signing cooperation agreements with Africa in 2020, Russia-Africa relations have enjoyed great renown and his party is ready to help Africa.
Russian leaders are set to have a conference with South Africa’s leaders to discuss about the food security status and energy guarantees ahead of a BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) meeting set for June.
