Russia has proposed to set up a service center for Russian-made helicopters in Sri Lanka, a deputy chief of Russia’s Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said today.

"We have submitted our proposals to equip a helicopter maintenance center and provide spare parts for armored hardware to the Sri Lankan side," the agency’s Mikhail Petukhov said at the LIMA 2017 military show in Malaysia.

Sri Lanka has 12 Mi-8/17 military transport helicopters, six Mi-24P attack helicopters, 36 BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles, and around 50 BTR-80 amphibious armored personnel carriers. (Sputnik International)

    Maybe they can create a plant in the Northern province so it will contribute to the local economy including some jobs.

    The more russia tries to influence sri lanka and militarise srilanka, the more sri lanka's bargaining power with the US. So it's a good sign. haha.
