Book chapter

Guns and poseurs: Russia returns to its imperial space.

С. 159-175.
Архангельская А. А., Dodd N.
Russia has a consistent record of exceptionalism, evidenced in its approach to Africa, which differs slightly from other ‘traditional’ and ‘new’ players on the continent. Based on Russia’s historical presence in Africa, support for liberation movements and extensive ties to African elites, it may seem that it is Africa’s natural ally. However, given the challenges faced by both parties, interactions between Africa and Russia may be reduced to a series of opportunistic initiatives to maximise economic gains over the short term.
