      What does Russia have to offer to Sudan when it has many internal and external problems. It must remove a beetle from its eye before removing it from the eye of Sudan. Its records are deadly. MAUMAU

      "I have endorsed Omer al Bashir for another term, he added, arrest warrant issued to Omer by ICC is viable and unrealistic" said by Russian envoy to Sudan, brothers, there is no any help which we acquired from Russia in the past and no hope we are lookin forward from Russia, they are hopeless, because of Russia, that is why the arrest warrant issued to Omer was delayed, they have acquainted themselves with Omer morethan everyone just to provide weapons to kill us, my worry is that, they would re-equiped Omer again if they found it pathetic enough to justify their needs, so the war can break out again, so they can benefit out of that.
