In March 1919, the Communist International was established in Moscow on the initiative of the Bolshevik Party. A never-before-seen organisation which declared its aim to establish Soviet power over everything in the world. Africa was not left out of the Comintern's attention.
How did it fan the fire of the proletarian revolution there? What influence did it have on South African communists? And how did the USSR and South Africa together bring victory in the Second World War closer?
We will talk about this and more in the studio of the project "BRICS: In the Mirror of Times" with Aleksandr Voevodsky, Candidate of Historical Sciences, Senior Researcher at the Centre for African Studies of the Institute of General History of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
The joint TV BRICS and GAUGN project received grant support from the Russian Ministry of Education and Science under the federal project "Popularisation of Science and Technology".
