Is Russia Pursuing a Pattern in Niger?

 The Hill published on 4 August 2023 an article titled "The Niger Coup Exposes Russia's Grand Strategy for Africa" by Stephen Blank, Foreign Policy Research Institute.

The author argues that Russia is following the same pattern in Niger that it did in Mali and Burkina Faso by supporting a military regime that overthrew a democratically-elected government.
