ABSTRACT

The 14th International Conference of Africanists that took place last October in Moscow convincingly demonstrated a high level of African Studies in Russia. After all the Institute for African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences with over a hundred staff members that hosted the conference is the biggest institution in the world in this field. However, most of the works by these scholars are published in Russian and as a rule are poorly known beyond the borders of their country. This review is an attempt to make readers of the REBREA acquainted with the writings of Dr Andrey Urnov, a prominent Russian diplomat and academic. Dr Urnov, a graduate of the Moscow Institute of International Relations has been doing research of the US policy since his student years. Then, from 1966, as a desk officer, head of section and finally deputy head of the CPSU International Department for almost a quarter of the century he had been responsible for Moscow’s political ties with African countries especially with the liberation movements. Later he was the first Soviet/Russian ambassador to Namibia. For his “excellent contribution to the fight for the liberation of the people of South Africa” he was awarded South African national order “Companions of O.R. Tambo” (silver). After retiring from diplomatic service he joined the Institute for African Studies as Principal Research Fellow.
