Since the beginnings of the victory of the Bassirou Diomaye Faye and Ousmane Sonko at the declaration of the official results giving the duo the winner by the electoral body of Senegal and confirmed by observers from serious countries deployed on the occasion, the French media and others of the Western line multiplied the insults to towards the new president Faye and the government team led by Ousmane Sonko…

Regarding the neocolonial policy of the French regime, mainly with regard to a number of countries on the African continent, within the framework of the system commonly called Françafrique, which is going through the most difficult times today, it is also appropriate to remember that the French metropolis is, in fact, still a colonial regime, counting to this day several so-called “overseas” territories, de-facto – colonies, among which New Caledonia deserves particular attention…

French head of state Emmanuel Macron visited India the other day. He was the chief guest of the celebrations in Delhi on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Republic of India, proclaimed on 26 January 1950 with the adoption of the Constitution. Traditionally, on this significant day, large-scale military parades and colourful civilian demonstrations are held in the capital and other major cities of the country. Every year the Indian leadership invites a high guest of honour to celebrate the Republic Day. Initially it was planned that US President Joseph Biden would come to Delhi, but he, citing his busy schedule, could not come and then the Indians…

As time passes after the end of France’s military presence in the Sahel and the last French troops are withdrawn from Niger, the focus of many political analysts is on analysing its previous policies in the region. The withdrawal of French troops symbolises the end of Paris’s strategy, which disproportionately emphasised military power while sidelining the more needed elements of social and political support for Africans. The same political scientists draw the natural conclusion that France’s over-reliance on the military to the detriment of fostering development ultimately led to a weakening…

During the last several years the situation in the Sahel region has undergone significant changes. Coups d’Etat have consistently taken place in Mali, Burkina-Faso, Niger and Gabon. Realizing their own significance in the multipolar world, African countries are more and more drifting away from the former colonial powers, which had used them for centuries as a cheap source of natural resources. Such perturbations in the region are giving way to a new span…

Over time, the future relationship between the Global South, including African countries, and the Western world minority represented by the respective regimes is becoming increasingly clear-cut. And it should be noted that these relations are heavily stacked against the latter. The most interesting thing is that the collective West seems incapable of understanding what repercussions their absurd actions will entail and keeps making one strategic mistake after another, thereby again stepping on the same rake due to its arrogance. In the first days of 2024, the Swedish regime, still struggling to formally join NATO…

According to a recent Council of Foreign Relations report, Russia’s growing influence results from a massive disinformation campaign. Those who read the report with an objective eye will quickly notice the earmarks of America’s disinformation campaign against the Russians. Where Russia-Africa relations are concerned, CFR and other sources cite Wagner PMC, weapons trade, and some form of Russian neocolonialism as major factors of the so-called “Russia shift.” That notorious “domino effect” Washington used to justify the Vietnam War appears to already be in motion in Africa…

France has suffered another geopolitical setback in Africa. On December 2, Burkina Faso and Niger announced their withdrawal from all G5 Sahel bodies, an institutional framework initiated by the leaders of Burkina Faso, Mauritania, Mali, Niger and Chad in 2014 and finally formed in 2017. On December 6, the Presidents of Mauritania and Chad also announced their withdrawal from the organization. Among the reasons for withdrawing from the alliance cited by the military leaders of the first two countries was the organization’s inability to effectively solve not only economic…

Immediately after the death of Chadian President Idriss Déby, who died in April 2021 from wounds sustained in fighting with rebels in the north of the country, the military announced the dissolution of parliament and government and the establishment of a Transitional Military Council headed by his son, thirty-seven-year-old General Mahamat Idriss Déby. In doing so, the military ignored the constitutional provision that upon the death of the head of state, the presidency is temporarily transferred to the president of the National Assembly, who within 90 days must hold…

The very recent liberation of the key Malian town of Kidal – and in a much shorter time than some experts had anticipated – came as a real shock to all neo-colonial forces in the West and opponents of the African-Russian alliance. Two key areas were recently analysed – the fact that the West is very reluctant to believe in the military successes of African countries (without the participation of Western forces), although it still has to, and that the current French and Western information attacks against Mali and a number…
