Russia's military presence in Africa is a long historic one. The Russian Congo military deal was signed in May 2019 to fix old war machines and guns. In the African country the Republic of the Congo Brazzaville,  a military cooperation agreement was signed with Russia in May 2019 providing military specialists to service Russian-made military hardware and equipment.  The government state organization the Congolese Armed Forces  is out armed using aging Russian Soviet-era weapons .  The Russian Congo military deal was signed in May 2019 after talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and  former Marxist  Congolese president Denis Sassou Nguesso.  Sassou Nguesso employs  Private militias, which are are armed military groups that are composed of private citizens and not recognized by federal or state governments.  Many of the Russian military trainers are labeled as  unarmed advisers but are speculated to be soldiers and private contractors working for the Russian government.  Ru

Africa is surrounded by water but is not an island, here are a few African Island facts.

Madagascar is the 4th large island in the world and is located in the Indian Ocean supporting a unique biology, about 90% of its plants and animals are found nowhere else on earth.

Composed of 155 islands, Seychelles is Africa's smallest country. By far the largest island is Mahe, home to about 90% of the population and the site of its capital city of Victoria.

Cabo Verde has a strategic location 310 miles or 500 km from the west coast of Africa near major north-south sea routes; important communications station; important sea and air refueling site.

Africa is surrounded by water but by definition Africa is not an island because Africa is a continent. Continents can not be considered islands because of their size and also by historic definition since many people who study geography define islands and continents as two different things.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
