Abstract

Russia's invasion of Ukraine has isolated it from the global community, especially the West and its allies. Due to this situation, Moscow has turned its search for allies and friends towards Asia and Africa. Looking at the African continent and how Moscow attempts to make new 'friends’ and maintain the old ones, we can see that Russia uses historical ties, military aid and anti-western sentiments as the means of making ‘friends’ in Africa.
