Re: H-Diplo Article Review 514 on Alessandro Iandolo. “Imbalance of Power: The Soviet Union and the Congo Crisis, 1960-1961.” [11 March 2015]

The USSR did not give aid to territories that were part of West European colonial empires. However, by the time of the Congo crisis in 1960, the Soviet Union was already providing aid to a number of newly independent countries in Africa and Asia. In several cases, aid talks had began shortly after the declaration of independence. Offers of aid were made to Congo too, but could never go beyond the initial stages because of the conflict and then the coups.
