Russia donates wheat to Ethiopia. Why?

Russia has donated a large quantity of wheat to Ethiopia, according to a report by Xinhua, a Chinese news agency. Meanwhile, Indian, Chinese and Saudi Arabian corporations are given large tracts of fertile land by Ethiopia’s genocidal regime to grow wheat, corn and other food to be exported to their countries. This the kind of game that is being played on the people of Ethiopia by Meles Zenawi’s junta and its Western backers. Ethiopia doesn’t have a shortage of food. Russia can keep its wheat. What Ethiopia lacks is a legitimate government.

ADDIS ABABA (Xinhua) — Russia donated on Saturday 2, 805 metric tons of wheat to World Food Program (WFP) Ethiopia.

Alexandr Letoshnev, Charge d’ Affaires of the Russian Embassy in Addis Ababa, said the Russian government commended Ethiopia’s success in the agriculture sector.

He said his country will remain a development partner of the country.

The people and government of Russian will assist the development activities in Ethiopia, Alexander said.

Lynne Miller, WFP Ethiopia deputy country director, thanked Russia for its generosity and said the number of people affected by the drought is dwindling.
