Russia's Strategy in Sub-Saharan Security in the Wake of the Ukraine Crisis

Alba Iulia Catrinel Popescu

International Journal of Economics & Business Administration (IJEBA), 2017, vol. V, issue 3, 31-43

Abstract: Stung by the West’s economic sanctions because of its role played in triggering and maintaining the present crisis in Ukraine, the Russian Federation is looking for solutions to help maintain its energy dominance of Europe and extend its economic, military, political and diplomatic strength.In this context, Africa’s resources, upon which the international economic system depends, are in play. How will the West counteract Russia’s increasingly aggressive penetration in Sub-Saharan countries which were traditionally in the West’s sphere of influence? How will China react? Are we going to witness an understanding between the BRICS and the West relating to a new division of Africa? Will there be new conflicts?
