The Central African Republic is one of the most unstable and dangerous countries in Africa. In 2018, government forces controlled only 2/3 of the country's territory. The country is almost in a state of civil war for 60 years.

CAR - Central African Republic is one of the most dangerous countries in Africa and the world

One of the most violent outbreaks of violence occurred in 2013-2014. There was a massacre between Christians and Muslims. Several tens of thousands of people died. Since then, the situation in the country has not improved much. Relatively safe in the capital. The average income of the population is 400-700 dollars a year, many live on a sum of less than $ 1 per day in equivalent for local currency. In view of this, a very large revelry of crime, and local law enforcement agencies almost do not work. A person can be killed first and then see if he has anything in his pockets.

The death of Russian journalists in the Central African Republic

In the summer of 2018, three Russian journalists Alexander Rastorguev, Orhan Dzhemal and Kirill Radchenko were killed in the Central African Republic. The journalists worked on the instructions of Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
All these reporters have no small experience of being in the hot spots of the world. One of them, after the editor's refusal to send him to Somalia, with his own money, flew to this country, where he got to the Somali prison, stayed there, but did a report. Journalists came to the country in private, that is, they did not receive accreditation and did not apply to the Russian consulate. Many believe that this was done purposefully, that it would be premature to not make public its mission.

What did Russian journalists do in the Central African Republic

There are several assumptions for what purpose military journalists visited the Central African Republic. One of the versions is that three Russians wanted to investigate the work of the Russian "PMC" private military company, allegedly located in the CARs illegally. But the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova denied the information that Russian military specialists are in the country illegally. She claims that 170 Russian specialists work in the country, at the invitation of the government of the Central African Republic.
The second version is that reporters wanted to investigate the illegal gold mining in the country. The CAR is the fifth largest gold producer in the world.



How events developed

In the evening, three Russians left the hotel in a rented car with a local driver hired. With them, they had Eight thousand dollars and expensive equipment. It is worth noting that in the CAR from 20:00 to 5 am there is a curfew and all movements are prohibited, the military can open fire to defeat.
When leaving the city to the block post, the car was stopped by journalists and informed that you are leaving to the territory not controlled by the government, especially at night. But the Russians decided to continue their journey. Further details of the events are not known. Some sources report that journalists were shot on the spot, others that they were killed after captivity and interrogation. Surprising is the miraculous rescue of the driver, who, for all these events, did not receive a single scratch.
According to one version of Russian journalists, they wanted to rob, and the local driver worked in conjunction with criminals and brought them to the place of death.

One of the not unimportant factors that very many people talk about, journalists neglected elementary methods of security and did not even hire security, whose price in the CAR is $ 300.
