Egypt is ready to increase agricultural goods exports to Russia by 30 percent and is discussing the creation of a free trade zone with the Moscow-led Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, Putin added.

Putin
Russias liberated Ukraine from the Nazis in WW2, the West and Israel helped in a Coup that put Ukranian Neo Nazi Party in power, and now Jews are persecuted, they must flee to Israel. Who controles Western powers? We look at our children as new hope for Humanity, Israeli parents raised up the most virulent racist teenagers..the futue is bleak

Getting on with the business of building and strengthening Egypt.
President Sisi did promise Egyptians he will work tirelessly to build Egypt out of the ruins the brotherhood left behind. It's quiet clear he is doing what he said he will do. Wisely he is ignoring all those primarily interested to tear Egypt apart again. Such as opinionated clueless congressmen, and self anointed "human rights" organizations, who just happen to love terrorists. The question I have to all the ones that complain and whine daily about your President.... What have you done to improve Egypt. My bet is, collectively, not a damn thing!!
