Russia to Build Naval Base in Sudan

 The Jamestown Foundation's Eurasia Daily Monitor published on 19 November 2020 an article titled "Russia to Build Naval Base in Sudan" by Pavel Felgenhauer.  

Sudan has signed an agreement with Russia that will result in the establishment of a Russian "naval supply station" at Port Sudan on the Red Sea.  The 25-year basing agreement permits Russia to berth up to four warships, including nuclear-powered vessels.  Russia will not pay any rent, but will build the base and provide Sudan free of charge with an undetermined amount of military equipment agreed upon in a separate agreement.
