    There are indeed instructors from Russia on the territory of the Central African Republic (CAR), but Moscow does not interfere in the internal affairs of the African country. This is how Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov assessed the presence of the Russian military in the republic, RIA Novosti reported on Thursday, January 20.

    "There really are our military advisers there... But, of course, some kind of participation in the internal processes of the CAR is impossible, and there is no question about it," the press secretary of the Russian president assured.

    At the same time, he noted that Moscow implements relations with the CAR authorities "at various levels."

    Earlier in January, Russian Ambassador to the CAR Alexander Bikantov said that there are currently 1,135 Russian military instructors in the republic. According to him, they arrived in the country in early 2018 at the request of the president of the CAR Faustin-Arkange Touadera, who feared the capture of the capital Bangui by militants.

    In June last year, CNN published an investigation conducted jointly with the independent investigative group The Sentry ("Sentry"). In it, Russians and alleged Syrian mercenaries acting on the side of the military CAR were accused of mass killings of civilians who did not take part in the fighting. The Russian Foreign Ministry called the article a "propaganda salvo."

    Before that, Russian specialists have repeatedly been accused of crimes against the residents of the CAR. In particular, the RFI investigation indicated that the republic's troops and their Russian allies were involved in hundreds of cases of violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, including 26 extrajudicial executions, five cases of rape, as well as 27 arbitrary arrests and imprisonment.
