The story of the “African Cinderella”
Recently the President of Equatorial Guinea Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo visited Moscow. The first official visit of the head of this African state to Russia may become equally significant for both countries. And it does not matter that the territory of Equatorial Guinea (28 thousand square kilometers) is barely half the size of the total area of the Moscow Region; the times when the significance of a country was measured by its size passed a long time ago. Equatorial Guinea has indeed something to offer and it truly makes this country a particular one.
