Ukraine war enters 99th day: Senegalese President to speak to Putin
The head of the African Union, Senegalese President Macky Sall, will speak with President Vladimir Putin in the southwestern Russian city of Sochi on Friday, Dakar said.
The visit is aimed at “freeing up stocks of cereals and fertilisers, the blockage of which particularly affects African countries”, along with easing the Ukraine conflict, Sall’s office said Thursday.
The visit was organised after an invitation by Putin, and Sall will travel with the president of the African Union Commission, his office added.
The AU will also receive a video address from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, though no date has been set.
