RUSSIA: Africans Among Drone Strike Casualties

A report from Russia by news outlet Sputnik revealed that A UAV struck business establishments in the Russian cities of Alabuga and Nizhnekamsk in the Republic of Tatarstan on Tuesday morning. Police confirmed that no fewer than fourteen people sustained injuries in the attack. However, there was no significant damage and the firms’ technological operations were unaffected.

Otieno Macrene Ochieng a Kenyan national currently enrolled at Alabuga Polytechnic Educational Center, was one of the victims of the attack. However, the media reports that she is recovering fast.

A simlar report was issued some days ago, when Ukrainian drones attacked the Kuybyshevsky Oil Refinery in the Russian district of Samara. This triggered a fire, and tried to strike another refinery, according to the governor of the region.

Russian relations with Africa

Russia has been on a mission to expand its influence across Africa. This is a mission that has spiked the nerves of its Western competitors. In March, West Africa’s Burkina Faso and Russia’s state corporation specializing in nuclear energy and high-tech products, Rosatom put in motion plans to establish a nuclear plant in the African country. The report noted that both sides are now in the process of signing a road map to make the nuclear reactor dream a reality.

This is one of the many moves the Eastern European giant has made to win over the African market. Other initiatives include the distribution of grains to African states in need. The addition of African members to the BRICS group of nations, and de-dollarization in bilateral trades. These are some of the moves that have caught the attention of other global powers.
