Moscow continues to build its presence in the African region as the President of the Central African Republic (CAR) declared recently that Russian forces had trained 10,000 CAR troops.

The Kremlin has been involved in CAR for some time, as the Russian Federation looks to secure a larger presence on the African Continent, and access to natural resources.

“We decided that we should focus not only on military training and the like, but to cultivate a truly patriotic force that loves their country. And we are working with Russian instructors along these lines,” he said in an interview with RTVI. “We continue training soldiers. Up to now, we have jointly trained more than 10,000 young troops, even much more. This is yielding results,” reported Russian state news agency TASS.

“Naturally, we do have some problems from the point of view of military infrastructure but we are working to correct this and will fix it.”

Touadera offered that since becoming president, his actions have been guided by the need “to modernize the army and take into account new challenges.” “We initiated a lot of reforms in our defense and security forces. We reorganized the army as a garrison-type one with defense zones (military districts) so that our defense forces could defend the population right on the ground. We decided to bring them closer to people and send them to really remote areas which come under numerous attacks and are gripped by violence,” he said. “We launched a training program, began to train not only the military but also the police, gendarmery and all other agencies that are to ensure our country’s security.”
