WORLD: African Union Chairperson Receives A Call From Russia, Stresses “For A Peaceful Solution To The Conflict Between Russia And Ukraine”

The head of the African Union Commission on Tuesday called for an end to the Russia-Ukraine war through dialogue.

Following a phone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, AU commission head Moussa Faki Mahamat said on Twitter: “I stressed for the need to respect international law and urged for dialogue for a peaceful solution to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.”

Russia’s war on Ukraine, which began Feb. 24, has led to thousands of deaths, millions being displaced and a broad range of sanctions on Moscow, in particular by the EU and the US.

It has also spurred an exodus of global firms from Russia, ranging from technology to automotive, energy, retail and various others sectors.​​​​​​​

Reports also suggest that inflationary pressures in Africa caused by the COVID-19 pandemic are worsening due to the Russia-Ukraine war.
