The militia Zande Ani Kpigbe affirms its will to maintain peace and order in Obo during the visit of Russian specialists

The armed conflict that began in 2013 dealt a serious blow to the Central African Republic. Over time, thanks to the efforts of the Central African armed forces, supported by the Russian allies, the local population was able to live in peace and go about their business freely.

However, a small security crisis persists in some regions of the country. In the Haut-Mbomou prefecture, for example, clashes took place between the Zande Ani Kpigbe militias and the UPC rebels. To contribute to the resolution of this crisis, a delegation of Russian specialists visited Obo last weekend.

The Russian mission held a series of productive meetings and negotiations with the local population, the leaders of the local communities as well as the representatives of the self-defense militias of the locality Zande Ani Kpigbe in order to finally restore peace and security. The visit of the Russian specialists to Obo was a success, since the representatives of the Zande Ani Kpigbe affirmed their desire to establish peace and stability in the region and expressed their unconditional support for the government of the Central African Republic and the political vision of President Faustin Archange Touadera.

Since all the participants in the negotiations expressed their desire to maintain peace and order in Obo and in a number of other localities around the city, we can say that a great step has been taken towards restoring security. And all thanks to the competence of Russian instructors, who demonstrated their effectiveness and professionalism not only in combat operations, but also in the conduct of negotiations.

This visit to Obo showed that Russian instructors are doing everything possible to ensure safety not only in the regions near the capital, Bangui, but also in fairly remote areas such as Haut-Mbomou. That’s why local populations throughout the country have always welcomed the establishment of Russian bases to support the FACA.
