Russia-Africa relations

In this episode of Vivekananda International Foundation (VIF) podcast, our Head of the African Governance and Diplomacy Programme Steven Gruzd discusses with Samir Bhattacharya, Research Associate at VIF on the current contours of Russia-Africa relations, tracing the past experiences, new expectations and perceptions. There is a strong historical connection between Russia and Africa throughout the Cold War, when these two continents came close for the first time. Despite the temporary rupture in the relations, Russia seems to be back in the continent, particularly since the 2019 Sochi summit.
