Niger Coup: France 0, Russia 1

Spread the Word

The military coup in Niger can be considered pro-Russian. The ousted president of Niger was definitely pro-French. Niger is important to France, there are uranium mines that actually feed France’s nuclear power, which provides more than half of France’s electricity. The President of Niger, at the request of France, by the way, refused to go to St. Petersburg to Putin for the Russia-Africa forum.

Now the US and the EU are demanding that the military transfer power back to him.

PMC Wagner may now appear in Niger, as they are already working in neighboring Mali.
