Rwanda, officially the Republic of Rwanda, is a country in East Africa. Paul Kagame has ruled Rwanda since the 1990s and was supported by Bill Clinton and Madeleine Albright.[1]

Aggression against DR Congo

Rwanda under Paul Kagame invaded the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1996. Rwanda supports the M23 rebel movement and profits off natural resources it steals from the DR Congo. In 2022, Rwanda invaded the Congo again with 500 soldiers along with the M23 rebels.[1]
