Russia, while not quite to the extent of the United States, is one of those countries where the rest of the world keeps up with what they’re doing. Especially in regards to military action.
A report by a Russian state-owned news agency recently revealed that not only are there now 535 Russian military personnel in the Central African Republic, there are plans to add about 600 more.
Russia’s Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations, Dmitry Polyansky, said back in May that Russia would be sending hundreds of “instructors” to the Central African Republic in the near future. Well, the near future appears to be now.
Polyansky added that the personnel are “not supposed to fight.”
While they’re not supposed to fight, he did admit that they “might deal with some armaments.”
