Particularly since France's announcement that it was withdrawing its troops from Mali, Russia has been gaining ground on strategically important terrain. It's no coincidence that the humanitarian and security situation has deteriorated dramatically since then. New ways must be found to stabilize the region and defend Western interests, and the fact that MINUSMA has been extended is a first positive step.
The West's moves in resource-rich Mali, and in the entirety of the Sahel, aren't motivated by the fight against jihadist insurgents, to promote democracy, or to secure a "rule-based order." Western members of the UN are only concerned with defending their own geostrategic interests - including against Russia. The so-called stabilization mission MINUSMA serves only as a tool for power projection, after the end of French neo-colonialism in Mali.
There is a 2% chance that Russia will be removed from the UN Security Council by 2024, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
