Russia develops special strategy in Africa

While the attention of the United States of America and the European Union is focused on the Middle East, the Russian Federation is developing cooperation with North Africa, Swiss publication Neue Zürcher Zeitung wrote.

The authors of the article believe that Russian President Putin is expanding Russia’s influence in Africa. Not that long ago, the article says, Russia handed over another submarine to Algeria. The publication also said that the Russian government actively supports Libyan military leader Khalifa Haftar. Tunisia has recently announced plans for «nuclear cooperation» with Russia.

It is not the first submarine that Russia has delivered to Algeria over time, the newspaper wrote. The  Kilo submarine that Russia delivered to Algeria is known in NATO member states as «black hole» as it hardly makes any noise during navigation.

Russia has a strategy in Africa, the goal of which is to gain more allies, the Neue Zürcher Zeitung newspaper concludes.
