PR-2023: PANEL DISCUSSION 5. "Russia-Africa: From Program Guidelines to Cooperation Practices"

In 2023, the second Russia-Africa summit was held, at which issues of political, economic and humanitarian cooperation between Russia and Africa in the era of the formation of a new world order were discussed. Both Russia and Africa have an understanding that in order to truly liberate themselves from colonial dependence and defend their own sovereignty, as well as to ensure security in the broad sense of the word, it is necessary not only to transfer our cooperation to a new strategic level, but also to move from general declarations to a concrete step-by-step plan for the implementation of all the tasks we have set. What areas of cooperation between Russia and Africa will ensure accelerated growth of our economies? What mechanisms and instruments of our interaction should be developed first? Can we jointly resist illegitimate sanctions and other forms of pressure from the collective West? What new areas of cooperation could be of most interest to our states? How important is the humanitarian component of Russian-African relations?
