What Russia Can Offer Africa

Experts agree that a new “battle for Africa” is currently unfolding. What Russia needs, however, is not a fight, but rather fruitful cooperation with all interested parties Russia is back to Africa.

... poisoning of Sergei and Julia Skripal. To be honest, Trump was right to point out at NATO Summit the fundamental hypocrisy of spending billions on NATO to defend Germany while Germany is building a gas pipeline with Russia, Nordstream 2, to run its economy and resell gas around Europe.
