Russia said on Friday that outside intervention would not improve the situation in Niger, after toppled President Mohamed Bazoum called on the United States and the international community to help restore constitutional order.

“It is unlikely that the intervention of any extra-regional force can change the situation for the better,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, adding that Russia was “monitoring the situation very closely and concerned about the tensions arising in the region”.
