Saying, unlike other Western states who often hide behind aid and financial support to achieve political gains, Russia will seek to assist Africa find solutions to its problems.

The Kremlin said it expects 47 African leaders to converge on the Black Sea city of Sochi for the October 23-24 event in Moscow’s first Russia-Africa summit, an ambitious push for influence and business in Africa.
