Russian President Vladimir Putin has been working for years to cement Russian influence in the Middle East, and the African continent. The goal is to ensure access to raw materials and to further Russian military capability in the region.

Russia’s Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin approved a draft agreement on establishing a naval logistics base in Sudan and gave instructions to submit a proposal to the president on signing the document, according to the information posted on the government’s legal information web portal on Wednesday, reported Russian state news agency TASS.

The draft agreement between Russia and Sudan on the naval logistics facility was submitted by Russia’s Defense Ministry, approved by the Foreign Ministry, the Supreme Court, the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Investigative Committee of Russia and preliminary agreed with the Sudanese side.

The draft agreement stipulates that a maximum of four warships may stay at the naval logistics base, including “naval ships with the nuclear propulsion system on condition of observing nuclear and environmental safety norms.”

The Russian Federation has made a habit of deploying mercenaries such as the ‘Wagner Group’ to provide a level of plausible deniability to Russian military operations globally.
