President speaks to Putin and asks for credit to get fuel

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin today and sought credit to obtain fuel.

The President tweeted saying he had a very productive telephone conversation with the Russian President.

Had a very productive telecon with the #Russia President, Vladimir Putin. While thanking him for all the support extended by his gvt to overcome the challenges of the past, I requested an offer of credit support to import fuel to #lka in defeating the current econ challenges,” President Rajapaksa said.

He also said that he made a humble request to the Russian President to resume Aeroflot flights to Sri Lanka.

Aeroflot had recently suspended flights to Sri Lanka after one of its planes was detained at the Bandaranaike International Airport.  

“We unanimously agreed that strengthening bilateral relations in sectors such as tourism, trade & culture was paramount in reinforcing the friendship our two nations share,’ President Rajapaksa said. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Failed system but nobody is willing to fix it. Sri Lanka went behind poor India and implemented a western based system to rule the country by creating division based on religion and language. Later on, it realised it was a wrong decision and took the ‘U’ but India created Tamil armed groups and destroyed the country.

    Sri Lanka’s population has increased four times since independence, but not the knowledge or skills.

    The country has assassinated far more talented leaders and intellectuals than creating or acknowledging. It has set a dangerous precedence. This has been an unofficial constitution for the political leaders and media personnel to fulfill their petty desires. The western powers can easily undermine people like me through poor and foolish Sri Lankans. They have been encouraging developing countries to increase their population in the name of religion and democracy without increasing their knowledge and skills. The western powers make sure that the people fight among themselves with limited resources. This makes easier to impose western interests by buying poor and uninformed people.

    You are fooling yourselves, if you think that Ranil can save the country. Here is my experience during the good governance government.

    I was in Sri Lanka between 2015 and 2017. This is what they did to an intellectual who spent most of his time in libraries. In 2015, they laughed at me during my speech for the position of Vice Chancellor at the University of Colombo. I gave a speech on how I intend to raise the standard of Colombo University by collaborating with the National University of Singapore (NUS). They shouted at me ‘this is Sri Lanka not Singapore.’ In 2017, a foreign puppet who didn’t even pass GCE O/L sprayed pepper spray into my eyes and robbed my laptop, Australian passport, and smart phone. I have a witness. I identified the culprit and lodged six complaints with the Sri Lankan police, but the police did nothing. Not a single Sri Lankan media outlet reported the incident.

    Ranil, Gota, Sumanthiran have blocked me from their Facebooks. This year Gota has blocked me from his Facebook, after I mentioned that banning chemical fertilizer is not a wise move without having enough organic fertilizer and adequate training to farmers. I also wrote them to run the both farming parallel, first year 10% organic and 90% chemical, second year 20% organic and 80% chemicals and so forth. I told them to have a ten years plan to establish organic farming, but they didn’t like it. The Sri Lankan politicians and media personnel dislike intellectuals due to lack of knowledge. The western powers are keeping them in dark with the help of India in the name of democracy. This is why it has waged Asia’s longest brutal civil war for decades and became the Asia’s first bankrupt country.

  2. Look these fuel lines that last for days have gone on for long enough…

    Just shut down Ceylon Petroleum Corporation completely and give all our fuel sheds to LIOC to run then we will have a steady supply of fuel for starters.

    Then we can start to fix other sections of our economy and restructure governance and other essential revenue generating sectors…
