Delegates from 20 African countries will come to the Yalta Economic Forum, which is illegally organized by Russian occupation authorities.

Fifty people from Mali, Niger, Lesotho, Morocco, Congo, Senegal, South Africa, Benin, Chad, Uganda and other countries in the African region have confirmed their participation in the events in occupied Yalta.

"The countries of Africa in recent years show quite good rates of economic growth and can become a new consumer market for Russian and, in particular, Crimean goods, with which our colleagues can get acquainted at the forum," the press service of the Yalta International Economic Forum YIEF says.

Politicians from Africa have already commented on their arrival.

“In fact, the essence of multipolarity is in the air of Crimea, which naturally joined Russia [it is about an illegal referendum of 2014 and the annexation of Crimea by Russia], thereby demonstrating the sovereign right of peoples to self-determination, which must be respected in all circumstances,” the member of the National Assembly of Mali Umar Mariko shares his thoughts.

Earlier this year a group of African politicians has already visited the annexed Crimea.

The invaders are also inviting delegations from Germany and Norway to the Crimea.
