In this way, he highlighted Russia’s support for Ethiopia during the colonial invasion of Italy in 1896 and the Soviet Union’s opposition in 1935 to the Italian occupation of the African country.

Last Friday, Russian Deputy Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Information Maxim Parshin stated that as part of efforts to strengthen relations with Ethiopia, cooperation in the field of digitization and information network security will grow.

Specifically, in a meeting with Al-Mulla, Parchin emphasized that the 8th Joint Ministerial Committee is an opportune moment to devise strategies in e-government services, digital skills and other areas.
