Abstract

The article actualizes national interests of Ukraine in the region of Tropical Africa, studies their importance for national safety and the current Ukrainian politics in Africa, develops the potential ways of its strengthening. African region plays a great role as an exporter of natural resources (especially mineral) for global economy. So the global political actors as China, the USA, the EU (particularly France) fight to get influential position in Africa. They are interested to control the places of natural resources mining and the ways of their transporting. Ukrainian presence in this region could open the new markets for Ukrainian products. The author analyzed the main threats for Ukrainian interests in the region from global influential centers and some possibilities for deepening the level of military, political and even economical cooperation. Ukraine could intensify diplomatic activity, continue the weapon selling and peacemaking operations.
