The Russia-Africa summit taking place in St. Petersburg will last almost four days. The official part is scheduled for Thursday and Friday, July 27 and 28. But many guests will stay until Sunday to attend the naval parade on the occasion of Navy Day.

Assistant to the President for International Affairs Yuri Ushakov said that on July 28, Vladimir Putin will make a big statement at the plenary session of the summit. He will give the floor to 17 leaders of African countries who have arrived in St. Petersburg.

The start of the event is scheduled for 10:15 Moscow time.

We will learn the exact content of the president’s speech only at the end, but now we can guess what Putin is most likely to say.


Probably, but not sure, Vladimir Vladimirovich will once again explain why we left him. In general, he already said everything on July 27, but the issue for the international agricultural market is sick, so it is not a sin to repeat it.

African politicians fear that world grain prices will now skyrocket and this will turn into a famine on the Black Continent and popular unrest. From this follows the second probable theme of the discourse.


Yes, the president promised many African countries to bring 25-50 thousand tons of wheat for free. We believe this promise will be repeated to reassure visiting politicians and, not least, global agricultural traders.


And of course, the president will not overlook other issues of cooperation. After all, food accounts for only a third of the trade turnover between Russia and Africa.

Our country traditionally builds power plants on the Black Continent. The Head of State will speak about the favorable conditions to continue with this practice. In addition, we are strong not only in hydroelectric power plants, but also in nuclear power plants.

Russia also sells hydrocarbons and cars to Africa.


The colonial past is a sensitive issue for many African countries. Therefore, it would be logical for Vladimir Vladimirovich to talk about the multipolar world and respect for the interests of different countries. This is in line with current Kremlin policy, and it will be good to hear from guests.
