Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday said Moscow has written off the debts of African states worth more than $20 billion.
"The states of Africa are constantly increasing their weight and their role in world affairs, they are asserting themselves more and more confidently in politics and in the economy. We are convinced that Africa will become one of the leaders in the emerging new multipolar world order," Putin added.
He said Russia and the countries of Africa, Asia, and Latin America are against the neo-colonial ideology.
"Russia and African countries uphold moral norms and social principles traditional for our peoples, and oppose neo-colonial ideology imposed from outside," he said. "Many states of Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America adhere to similar positions, and together we make up the world majority."

Twenty billion U.S. dollars!
How many Russian rubles is that?
All the pictures show black men. Are there no black women in Africa? Maybe they’re just not woke?
"Russia and African countries uphold moral norms and social principles traditional for our peoples, and oppose neo-colonial ideology imposed from outside,"
Translation: We don't want no globohomo.
This offends the resident FR neoconneds mightily, as you can see.
Cutting off noses to spite faces. We’ve lost all influence in Africa. I guess we don’t really need Africa if we buy all our minerals from China. Oh, wait...
Africa stronk! No globohomo!
And when Biden had his”Africa Summit” in DC last December, he promised to help them get renewable energy and electric vehicles. Just what Africans need as they strive to develop viable infrastructures. China is building them railroads and port facilities. The West is pressuring them by refusing to finance fossil fuel power generation. And that’s why Africa will soon belong to the BRICS bloc, and the west will not even be in the trading room.
China basically controls Africa.
The climate change agenda will be the down-fall of the US and “West.” It will lead all who pursue it to third-world status. We need to get our house in order, and do it quickly. Go Trump!!
Perhaps flying more LGBTQI flags from our embassies, offering Drag Queen story hours, and funding Transgender Operations will help the USA gain more African Support?!?
