Cities that were hit hard at the start of the coalition’s progress as Mbaïki are now calm. The main Yaloke-Bossembele-Bouali axis, which has been the subject of fierce fighting, now appears to be ready, although security sources ensure that armed elements remain located not far from the main road.
Border traffic supplying Bangui has not yet resumed. On earth, some hope if the insurances are given to be able to see the convoys circulate again next week.
Some cities are worried despite the calm, especially Bangassou or Berberati. The armed groups threatened to reach these sites, but the situation remains under control at the moment. The arrival of Russian and Rwandan forces appears to have changed the situation, although information is difficult to obtain from the ground.
