A new approach: limitations to the Russian role in countering terrorism in Africa

The recent period revealed the formation of a distinct Russian approach with an official nature regarding Russian security and military involvement in the African continent, which was evident in the intensive and successive visits made by the Russian Deputy Defense Minister Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, to some African countries, as these visits targeted deepening the levels of security and military coordination between Russia and its African allies in Libya and the African Sahel countries as part of a new military entity known as the “African Corps.”

The announcement of the African Corps indicates Moscow’s adoption of a central security approach aimed primarily at countering terrorism in the African Sahel, especially after the crises that surrounded the Russian “Wagner” group following the death of its former leader, “Yevgeny Prigozhin,” and the decline in financial and logistical support for the group. Moscow subsequently decided to form a military entity that would be directly under its authority and at the same time provide it with security mechanisms akin to those that directed the Wagner Group’s framework for countering terrorism in Africa.
