Russia-Africa Summit Likely to Focus on Political Issues

 Modern Diplomacy published on 22 July 2023 a commentary titled "Russia-Africa Summit to Focus on Neocolonialism and Global Politics" by Kester Kenn Klomegah, an independent researcher.  

Political issues will likely dominate the Russia-Africa Summit on 27-28 July in St. Petersburg.  Tangible economic results from the last Russia-Africa Summit at Sochi in 2019 have been disappointing.  COVID-19 and Russia's invasion of Ukraine account for some of the lack of improvement in Russia-Africa relations but not all of it.
