Dear visitors of the site of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in the State of Eritrea. Esteemed colleagues, friends, and ordinary readers.

I would like to welcome you on the website of the Russian Diplomatic Mission in Asmara and thank you for your interest to Eritrea and Russian-Eritrean relations.

Do you want to know what kind of country Eritrea is, where it is, who lives there, about its human, natural and investment potential? On our website you will find many useful materials on these and other issues, including a Guide to the country.

I understand that objective information is important for the readers. We will do our best not to disappoint you. On the website, you will learn about Russian-Eritrean relations, the activities of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Asmara, important meetings with diplomats accredited here and representatives of government agencies. The site will also tell you about consular and other functions within the competence of our Diplomatic Mission. If it be necessary, we will warn you about any emergencies and natural disasters. We will also report on the situation with COVID-19, sanitary and epidemiological situation in Eritrea, in Russia, and all over the world.

I’d like to note that our site is designed not only for the Russian-speaking audience, but also for colleagues who speak English. The English-language NEWSLETTER of the Embassy is regularly published for them.

I hope that the site will be informative, interesting and useful for not only people who specialize in the fields of foreign policy, geopolitics, etc., but also for ordinary readers interested in unknown, distant countries. I wish you a good time on our website.


Igor N. Mozgo, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation to the State of Eritrea
