Russia has delivered Pantsir-S1 air-defense missile-gun systems to Ethiopia in November, according to Sputnik -Russian news source.

It was in the same month that the two countries held what Sputnik described as “a fruitful defence cooperation meeting that same month.”

The next bilateral meeting between Russia and Ethiopia might happen in November 2020 in Addis Ababa, according to Alemayehu Tegenu, Ethiopian Ambassador to Russia.

Sputnik quoted Tegenu as saying :

“The meeting was very successful. The committee reached a lot of agreements. The next meeting will be conducted this year in Addis Ababa, probably in November. We will continue working with Russia because we want to modernise our military force. As you know, our military is very strong in the region, participating in peacekeeping operations, working to combat terrorism too. In this regard we always want to cooperate with countries like Russia.”

While expressing Ethiopia’s interest in working with Russia to continue the modernization scheme of the Ethiopian Defense Force, Ethiopian Ambassador said that “Ethiopia would be very happy to receive Russian President Vladimir Putin,” as cited in Sputnik report.

    MY Humble Reaction: WHAT FOR!?!? AMAZING!!! Will the above substitute for sane sociological, economical, educational, healthy, agricultural development … in Ethiopia, for Ethiopians, by Ethiopians??? It is madness. And yet, the Government of Ethiopia, for the people of Ethiopia, are arming Ethiopia at the direction of a notorious Nation, historically well known for the devotion of Life arming itself for destruction, using innocent countries, mesmerized by emotional rhetoric. I remember with deep sadness and shame the days when innocent students repeating the slogans of mad theoreticians of far away mysterious lands. And now it reminds me of a book >>> “Cry, my beloved country”

    Humble Reaction with HORROR
    i) “continue working with Russia”??? What for ???!!! For more modern destruction?!?! ii) “our military is very strong in the region,” Will that bring food, health, education to the Ethiopian people, who are hungry for simple little life ??????? iii) “Ethiopia would be very happy to receive Russian President Vladimir Putin,” Do you know who Putin is? Do you know his upbringing? Do you know his psychiatric, psychological make-up? Do you know………never mind. I better STOP here. But I cannot resist repeating [silently] what has been general accepted as the TRUTH about our dear AFRICA. I can only shade a string of drops of tears. THE END

      felicitating news for violent and mastereminds of genocide, abduction etc like Abiy , Solomon Mengistu(ur papa gave you an improper name for saddist man like you)

      rassiya was stealing our resouces during derge . They were arrested while trasporting our gold inside a body . This is just what is reported in our media. I donot trust any foreign party will help ethiopia without expecting sth in return; donot fool yourself unless you are a mercenary working for an alien force.

      Donot let yourself deceived just becoz rasains are orthodox or whatever. I never met people from western world who respect and love me as a brother in Christ or in St Mary taking my religious background into account. We deal with them like any client who is in search of an item from a businessman.

      Thank you so much. If you are not able to live peacefully and work cooperatively with Tigray and Oromo , donot expect charity, money without debt, a foreign country.

    JUST UMBRELLA SO SELF TERMINATION IN CRITICS ENDS (J.U.S.S.T.I.C.E.) sheds lights and calls for a united stand against injustice caused by Woyane in Ethiopia and elsewhere.

    JUSSTICE emphasizes the need for the continuation of the BOYCOTT of all TPLF businesses and not even socialize with Woyanes to the extent of not even saying hello to any WOYANE sympathizers while in public or in private until victory day .

    It is time to use their style of attack , let us completely isolate WOYANE from the whole Ethiopian population as they isolated Ethiopians from all human rights. No attending their weddings , no attending their funerals , no attending religious functions together with WOYANES , NO mailing Woyanes , no talking on the phone to WOYANES or no making any other form of contact with Woyanes . VICTORY IS A MUST!!

    This is a good news and a good start
    as we all know our country Ethiopia is surrounded by so many enemies like egypt,somalia, alqaeda,iss and…..etc
    So that Ethiopian army must be build with highily sophisticated wepons , well traind and heavily armed military force.

    also besides the economy ethiopian government must keep investing in military and highily organized security professionals.

    It is obvious that Ethiopian defense forces (from armaments of all kind, ground arsenal to aircraft), have gloriously been equipped and astonishingly trained, especially in the past–socialist regime, by our lovely friends, RUSSIANS !!! As Russians, today, are playing “Stellar-Role” in world platforms, to safeguard “weak nations” from warmonger adversaries, it is “unquestionably” important to bond with Russia in every matters.
    Russia- at this days, has amazingly showcased its “Cutting-edge” arms, by far the most, its air-defence weapons like, S-300, S-400, and S-500 and various ground-to-air missiles, ( which are deemed INVINCIBLE)! It is also the “only nation” to possess “Hypersonic-Missile” systems of both conventional and nuclear capable. Apart from that, some of its fighter aircafts namely; Su-31 and Mig-41, a few to mention, are also known to be designed for hypersonic capabilities.
    However I tried to say very few about great Russians profile, I glad our nation to acquire, not only the Pantsyr S-1, but also S-400 surface-to-air missiles, with additional air force capabilities in possessing “SU-57 Stealth Fighter-Jets”!!!
