NOT ONLY FRENCH WHO FEAR RUSSIAN PRESENCE IN AFRICA …

Ling YUN XUWAN

WASHINGTON [LNC] – The “kings of the world” fearing for their worldwide hegemonic domination, have a very bad regard, and a growing concerfor the increasing presence of Russians in the Africa. So much that the Senate Armed Services Committee  asked for a hearing, the U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Thomas D. Waldhauser, U.S. Africa Command commander.

The “star-studded” man told that: “Russia’s growing presence in African countries was a major concern.” Stating that:“In the Central African Republic (CAR), Russia has consolidated its influence through expanded military collaboration, including arms shipments, and in exchange it gains access to markets and mineral rights in the country, […] and in return, it obtained wide facilities for access to markets and mineral rights in the country.” 

175 MERCENARIES OF THE WAGNER GROUP ON GROUND IN CAR

Waldhauser added also that: «the US has reason to believe there are 175 “trainers” in the CAR from the Russian private military company known as the Wagner Group.» 

The American general expressed concern that their presence may spread to other African countries.

« Foreign actors in the CAR, such as Russia, undermine security and go against the US’s interests ».

Admitting by the way that he didn’t care of the ongoing terrible situation in Centrafric: “AMERICA FIRST !”

WAGNER’S MEN ARE REALLY DOWN IN AFRICA

According to reports in the Russian media, as of October 2018, there were 175 Russian military instructors in the CAR to train the local military, with an additional 60 en route. The reports did not specify which organization the instructors belonged to.

In January, The Times reported that mercenaries from the Wagner Group are also active in Sudan, supporting the country’s president, who is facing the largest protests in his 30-year reign. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova admitted that “members of Russian private security firms” are active in Sudan, but denied that they have any connection to the Russian government.

TOWARDS THE REHASH OF THE COLD WAR?

Interest of Americans suddenly reawakens for the region of the great lakes. Whereas up to then, they didn’t give a damn. Because fearing the CAR case may produce a domino effect, affecting the entire area, and provide an opportunity  for  Russia’s ambitions in Africa.

The initial American offensive anti-Russia in Africa, and more specifically in CAR, would be financial.

TRUMP regularly threatens to stop funding MINUSCA, quoting: “this expensive and useless thing”. If no longer opening the wallet as first mean of pressure to bring them back into range.

For the moment, the CAR case is assigned to French, expecting from them to do the necessary to break the will of TOUADERA and his government of dissenters.

Awaiting brutal options, if intimidation, fearmongering and financial pressure did not work.
