Russia’s Military Base in Sudan

In a previous post, I highlighted China’s Liberation Army’s Navy’s (PLAN) military base, located in Djibouti. Well, I’ve come across more backward politics coming out of the continent.

The following information is from Al-monitor.

Russia plans on building a military base on Sudan’s Red Sea coast, located near the city of Port Sudan. According to the draft agreement, signed by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, the base will serve as a logistics center for the Russian navy.

In the agreement, Sudan will provide a land plot for the Russian base free of charge for 25 years; it will automatically renew for subsequent 10-year periods. Four ships, including nuclear-powered ships, will be permitted to dock at a time, not exceeding 300 military personnel. And Russia will have the right to import and export any weapons, ammunition, and equipment necessary for base operation and performance of tasks by warships.

The following was also advised:

At the request of the Sudanese authorities, the Russian side can assist in the organization and implementation of underwater countersabotage support in the territorial waters of Sudan, participate in search and rescue operations, help provide air defense for the local naval forces and strengthen the capabilities of the Sudanese armed forces. The agreement specifies that for these purposes Russia will supply Sudan with weapons, troops and special equipment in a manner and under terms that will be stipulated in a separate protocol.

Africa’s subservience and ridiculous politics will continue to usher in disrespect to the continent, its citizens, and descendants throughout the diaspora.
