Global Reverberations of Russia’s War on Ukraine: Perspectives on Africa

Episode Notes

Though some African countries strongly denounced the Russian invasion of Ukraine, many African states have declined to condemn the Kremlin in United Nations resolutions. This reticence surprised Western policymakers, but it shouldn’t have.

As Russia’s aggression in Ukraine continues to reverberate in Africa, please join Hudson Senior Fellows Peter Rough and Joshua Meservey as they welcome Joseph Sany of the United States Institute of Peace and Ebenezer Obadare of the Council on Foreign Relations to analyze the historical, economic, and diplomatic complexities that shape the varied African perspectives on Russia.
