The civil war in Somalia, ongoing since 1991, has destabilized the African state, with rebel forces largely seizing control of the country from the government.
"The Somali government has expressed sincere gratitude to the government of the Russian Federation for the assistance which is another manifestation of the traditional friendly relations between our two countries," the Russian ministry said.
