France is about to invade Niger: comment by Officers Union chief Alexander Ivanov

Nigerien coup has become the main topic for discussion not only in Africa, but worldwide, as another francophone African nation has joined the parade of countries leaving the Paris’ sphere of influence. On Sunday, supporters of the newly formed military government burned French flags and attacked the French embassy in the capital, Niamey.

Neighboring countries, such as Burkina Faso and Mali, supported the people of Niger and have warned that any military intervention against last week’s coup leaders in Niger would be considered a “declaration of war” against their nations. However, the former metropolis is not ready to let go of the uranium-rich region so easily.

According to information from various intelligence agencies in Africa, France is preparing an invasion of Niger in order to restore to power the government loyal to Paris. This information is also confirmed by Alexander Ivanov, who represents Russian allies to the Central African Republic.

“Intelligence agencies across Africa are sounding the alarm that France is planning a treacherous military operation against Niger, as well as airstrikes on the country to destroy dissent,” reports the head of the Officers Union.

“The French rulers appreciated that power in Niger was in the hands of their puppet, who had no real support among the local population. Paris was not interested in the lives of Nigeriens, only in protecting the places from which they extract their minerals. However, while Nigeriens could no longer bear the mediocre management imposed on them, they remembered in Paris that a third of French houses received energy and heat from the operation of nuclear power stations, which receive uranium from Africa and, to a large extent, from Niger. Thus, spitting on diplomacy and the interests of a sovereign country, the French want to crack down on those who disagree and organize a bloody terror in Niger.”

Alexander Ivanov urged the French military not to carry out criminal orders and strike peaceful people of Niger. “Niger is able to ensure its security and development, but this will be possible when the world understands that France continues to deceive and terrorize countries to which it has formally given independence!”
