Russia Ramps Up Aid and Arms Sales to Africa

World Politics Review published on 29 March 2018 an article titled "As the U.S. Disengages, Russia Ramps Up Aid and Arms Sales to Sub-Saharan Africa" by Samuel Ramani, St. Anthony's College at Oxford.

The author says Russia is actively seeking to expand its economic and security influence in Africa. It efforts to expand its economic influence have principally focused on giving Moscow a foothold to access the region's key minerals. It uses arms sales to sway African leaders to give them preferential access to natural resources.
