The West should be called upon to pay compensation to African countries for the era of colonialism, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said last week. She noted that countries that for centuries have plundered the continent’s natural wealth and destroyed African people for their own gain are in no rush to admit their guilt. Matvienko made the statements at the Russia-Africa parliamentary conference, a preparatory event before the big summit in July.
Africa is now another pole of the new multipolar world. Russia has traditionally maintained excellent relations with most countries on the continent. In the current tense situation, these countries, despite strong pressure, remain neutral, do not join US or European sanctions and continue to develop economic and political contacts with Russia.
