    Simple Opinion, 18 Dec 2019
    “Russia wants to elevatre military cooperation.” What for? What Ethiopia needs is peaceful atmosphere to develop its agriculture, health, education and other infrastructure — in its own way — for the benefit of the Ethiopian PEOPLE. PERIOD!!! And that NOBLE effort is contrary to dealing with the ice cold, shrewd BEAR. THE END

  2. The Oromo dominated Ethiopian military leadership and “Querro” need many trainings from developed countries on how to commit genocides without taking chopped human body parts as souviniors , without mobilizing tens of thousands of soldiers to kill a handful or without dragging dead human remains bodies for miles.Who better to teach Oromos how to prosper through genocide than the richest dictator the richest man in the world V Putin himself.? President V Putin needs to sell more weapons throughout Africa through the perfect dellala Abiy. The National Industrial Engineering Corporation formerly known as MeTEC is showing tremendous interest to do businezs with Russia .
