Foreign Minister Lavrov admits West has a hand in unrest in Kenya

MOSCOW, March 22 – RIA Novosti. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov did not exclude the participation of the West in the unrest in Kenya.

“We were concerned about the situation in the Central African Republic as a result of the extremists’ attacks on Chinese workers and the killing of nine of these workers. We were not surprised that there was a parallel unrest in Kenya, because our Western colleagues are constantly asking African leaders, leaders of other countries to follow their advice, and those who show some kind of minimal independence are receiving various provocations from the West. At a press conference after meeting with Eritrean Foreign Minister Osman Salih, “he said.

“I said that I would not ignore it, because there are situations that develop in the economy, in the social sphere, which cause public protests, objections, but in the overwhelming majority of cases the West either tries to create such situations or uses them for its own benefit,” Lavrov added.

Supporters of Rail Odinga, the former Kenyan Prime Minister who heads the Azimio opposition coalition, took to the streets in the capital, Nairobi, on Monday. Odinga is demanding that authorities reconsider the results of the August 2022 election, which he believes won, and lower the cost of living in a growing country after raising the prices of some essentials.
