Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed on Thursday said that he spoke to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Bilateral issues between the two countries and international affairs of “common interest” were discussed during the conversation, Abiy Ahmed said in a Twitter message he shared on his timeline. 

“I held a phone call with President  @ZelenskyyUa today to discuss bilateral and international matters of mutual interest as well as the means and ways of bringing peace between Ukraine and Russia,” he tweeted.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy did not mention on any of his social media pages that he spoke to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine did not report about it either. 

Reactions to Abiy Ahmed’s tweet range from support to flattery to ridicule, as has the case been for many months now. 

Those who support what Abiy Ahmed does hail it as a good job.  Michael Fantu said , “That’s great! I’m glad to hear that you had a productive phone call with President Zelenskyy. It is important to keep the lines of communication open between the two countries, and I hope that you were able to make some progress toward bringing peace to Ukraine.

And then there are those who ridiculed Abiy Ahmed. Some of the remarks in Amharic read, “he too is unsound like you.” 

During a parliamentary appearance since the start of the Russia-Ukraine war, Abiy Ahmed has been consistently citing it as one of the factors for the economic hardship in Ethiopia. At the same time, his government was making claims about “wheat export” to Africa – apparently ‘to fill the gap that Russia-Ukraine war created’.  

Ethiopia and Russia have signed a number of MoU in a range of areas including in defense.

    Humble Reaction
    Why not save Home Country instead of jumping to other countries problems ?!?!?

  2. The ruffian in Moscow is now scared stiff to leave town even for the most important meeting scheduled in South Africa. The meeting is where the group he helped found, BRICS, and its leaders were to meet. Since the Wagner Group mutiny, this child murderer does not trust even his sister, brother, uncles or parents if they are still around and in good terms with him. He must be scared of his own shadow now. Why not? His drones, missiles and bombers have murdered toddlers and the helpless elderly at will just to ‘punish’ a small democratic neighbor for no reason.

    • Ittu Aba Farda,

      It is crazy, to hear, you, the man who defends one murder enthusiastically, speaking out against another murderer!!!

      Why don’t you talk about the woman, the children, the elderly, the disabled who are being killed daily, and hundreds of thousands whose homes was demolished by your man, Abiy Ahmed?

      What makes you inhuman monster to these people and pretentiously humane to this other people?
