My name is Shivangi Gupta and I am a student of English Literature. I loved reading from a very young age and my fascination with stories and experiences is never-ending. Literature, for me, is not just stories but the life experiences and expectations of different people from time and beyond. I believe that literature brings an essence in the life of which, most people are unaware. Writing is not just a passion but a way of learning and swotting new things. I have been writing research papers for international journals since 2018. Covering topics from the old age cultures of the Anglo-Saxons to the goods and bad of the latest technology and gadgets.

In his speech during the reception ceremony, Engineer Rear-Admiral Haji Ahmed Youssef said that “the ship is a real addition to the capabilities of the Sudanese Navy in the field of training, and appreciated the Russian support in this regard.”

A team of Russian military instructors will remain for a month in Sudan to train the Sudanese crew.

On January 9, 2019, Moscow revealed its approval of a military cooperation agreement with Sudan under which the two countries will work to develop relations in the areas of joint military training, engineering training, and military education.

Also, the agreement provides for use of Port Sudan by Russian warships after notification not later than 7 days before the date of entry. The agreement was not affected by the political change that took place in Sudan.

In October 2019, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with the head of the Sovereign CouncilAbdel Fatt al-Burhan on the sidelines of the Russian-African summit in Sochi and declared his support to the political change Sudan.

During a meeting with the visiting Director of the General Administration of International Cooperation at the Russian Defense Ministry in February 2020, the Sudanese army Chief of Staff Mohamed Othman al-Hussein stressed the importance of activating the military agreements signed between Khartoum and Moscow.
