The Juba-based Sudd Institute published on 10 June 2014 a brief commentary titled "What Is South Sudan's Wisdom Courting Russia?" by Abraham A. Awolich, a founding member of the Sudd Institute. The paper analyzes the emerging relationship between Moscow and Juba. It suggests that Russia may be willing to block UN sanctions against South Sudan while the United States and China take a tougher position against Juba.
