Mali approaches ‘Russian private companies,’ slams France at UN

As some countries withdraw their troops in Mali, the government is looking elsewhere to strengthen the fight against jihadists.

Russia’s foreign minister said Mali urged private Russian companies to strengthen security as Mali’s leaders accused France of abandoning conflict-affected countries by preparing a large military drawdown. Confirmed on Saturday.

Russian paramilitary organizations, civilian security instructors and businesses have become increasingly influential in recent years in Africa, especially in the Central African Republic, which suffers from conflicts that the United Nations has accused of abusing Wagner’s contractors.
