Ukraine Nobel Prize Winner on Russia's War and Impact on Africa

Oleksandra Romantsova, who is the executive director of the Centre for Civil Liberties and the country's first-ever Nobel Peace Prize recipient in 2022, discusses the effects of Russia's war in Ukraine on African nations.

The human rights defense organisation has operated in Ukraine since 2007, and since 2014, the centre documented war crimes in Ukraine, particularly in Crimea and Donbas, as a result of Russian aggression - in relation to stability, security, and economic well-being.

She speaks with allAfrica's Melody Chironda and provides insights on Russia's growing involvement in Africa, often described as a "new scramble for Africa".
