The need of cooperation between Ukraine and African countries

Ukraine’s President Zelenskyi has recently announced the need to boost Ukrainian diplomacy with African countries. Ukraine plans to increase the country’s presence in Africa by opening 10 new embassies and strengthening trade ties. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba also conducted a visit to Africa which became Ukrainian government’s first diplomatic tour across the continent in decades.

All these efforts underline the importance of the partnership with African states for Ukraine during its resistance to Russian aggression. In this context, the fact that Russia has rapidly increased its propaganda across African countries adds to the need for Ukraine to strengthen its positions on the continent.

Ukraine and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have surely not paid enough attention to Ukrainian-African diplomatic relations in the past, and all this has to be made up now, as the significance of Africa for Ukraine only grew amidst the Russian war.
