Abstract
The true decolonization is essential not only for better understanding in the political or economic sphere but should be exercised today for the African Studies as well. This new understanding for what was Soviet African Studies in the 1960s can be obtained now through thorough analyses of the new declassified archive documents from the Russian Foreign Policy Archive available today. These documents testify that the level of understanding of what was going on in Black Africa was not adequate to African realities and could not inspire the practical deeds of Soviet foreign policy in Africa.
