Russian Arms Sales to Africa

The pro-Russian Strategic Culture Foundation posted on 18 May 2017 an informative piece titled "Russia Makes Big Strides to Expand Arms Sales in Africa" by Alex Gorka.

The posting provides details on recent Russian arms transfers to Egypt, Algeria, Nigeria, and Uganda. Africa accounted for 11 percent of Russia's arms exports from 2011 to 2015. Russia supplied 30 percent of the heavy weapons going to North Africa and 27 percent to Sub-Sahara Africa. It is building military helicopter service centers in a number of African countries.
