Two officials from Russian oil company in Sri Lanka

Two officials from a Russian oil company arrived in Sri Lanka today to discuss the purchasing of oil.

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa yesterday spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin 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. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Go Gota Go ! This is a cheer not a protest slogan. Can he do one more deal for his superannuation/ retirement fund ala the Mig deal ? All the best !

    It appears the SJB will be the beneficiaries of the commission. Poor, much maligned Gota can’t take a trick.

    Apey Anduwa ta Jayaweywa !!!!

  2. Don’t put your two feet into two different boats. If you decide to go with Russia and China, you should commit yourselves. Otherwise, nobody will trust you. If you show your head to the US and Tail to Russia and China, you will end up learning a bitter lesson. Don’t ever think that you are wiser than Russians and Chinese. Otherwise, I would live in Sri Lanka not in Australia. Think about your intellectual capacity, you are begging the world to survive. So act wisely, I wish you all the best.
