U.S. ambassador accuses South Africa of aiding Russia's war via secret cargo ship

The United States is concerned about South Africa’s alleged military aid to Russia, which could damage the relationship between the two countries.

Despite South Africa’s neutral stance on the war in Ukraine, the Biden Administration was hoping it could still be a key buffer against growing Russian and Chinese influence on the continent.

The Lady R, a vessel tied to a company sanctioned by the US for transporting military equipment for the Russian government, was reportedly docked in South Africa.

While South African President Cyril Ramaphosa’s office denied the allegations, an investigation is underway.

South Africa’s recent displays of closeness to Russia have opened the country to accusations that it has taken Russia’s side in the conflict.
