Russia has been actively participating in the events in the Central African Republic for several years now. Earlier it was reported that fighters of the so-called “Wagner PMC” were operating there.
This week, Russia has sent additional military instructors to the CAR. Russia is again training military personnel in one of the countries.
As a reminder, since 2012, a war has continued in the CAR between rebel groups and the current government, whose forces are supported by UN peacekeepers. In recent days, the rebels have managed to occupy several settlements near the capital and take control of the roads leading to it.
Yesterday, on election day, gunfire was heard in several cities across the country.
