Russia plans to establish a military base on Sudan’s Red Sea coast to serve as a logistics center for the Russian navy, according to a draft agreement between Moscow and Khartoum signed by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and released publicly Nov. 11.
The agreement states that Sudan will provide a land plot for the Russian base free of charge for a period of 25 years. It will automatically renew for subsequent 10-year periods. To terminate the deal, one of the parties must notify the other party of its intention at least one year before the expiration of the next period.
While the base’s capacity will be capped at four ships at a time, nuclear-powered ships are permitted to dock, thus significantly increasing the combat capability of the Russian navy in the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. The number of military personnel permanently staying at this facility should not exceed 300 people, according to the agreement. Also, Russia will have the right to import and export through the seaports and airfields of Sudan "any weapons, ammunition and equipment" necessary for the operation of the base and "for the performance of tasks by warships." Sudan, according to the published document outlining the agreement, will not collect import and export duties and taxes.

Ezekiel 38/39 coalition continues to build unity.
PM me if you wish to be added or removed from the End Times Ping List.
The Blue Nile Navy?
So what? China has released a biological attack on the whole world. Seem a little more important to me.
When Russia was communist and ruled half of Europe - this news might concern me. But Reagan won the Cold War and Russia is Christian - even upholding civilizations norms by prohibiting homosexual adoptions.
Today it’s western atheists and communists who hate Russia.
Unless you’re a western atheist or communist or crusader against traditional western morality, I don’t see why you’d hate post-communist Russia
If we have commies running the government here - why are we throwing money down the drain halfway around the world?
Playing cowboys and Indians while they let our cities burn, elect totalitarians etc is an eye-opener. Our military is worthless... mansions for generals, big paying jobs for creepy weapons we don't use, will never use and bills and deficits sky high. All fun and games until you discover these same generals want communism here... Only difference is: THEY want to be "the thugs in charge" of it.
For the people? We don't care if it's commie thugs from Russia, China,or Washington's deep state. We don't want commie thugs.
If the military can't protect us, if they only play the role of 'social experiments for leftwing bullies', then disband them.
What a role reversal, eh?
Who would have ever thought it at the height of the Cold War?
Wuhan First Strike.
That might be a safe place for the Russians to base their aircraft carrier.
