Russian  Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, in her congratulatory remarks on Sri Lanka in view of Independence said Sri Lanka and Russia  maintain political contacts, including at the highest and high levels, and cooperate productively on the international arena, at the UN and other multilateral platforms. 

 
Her remarks made on January 28 were conveyed to the media by the Russian embassy in Colombo.   She said, “The friendly people of Sri Lanka have come a long way in the fight first against Portugal, then Dutch and British colonisers. The island nation gained freedom in 1948 after more than a century of British colonial rule.   
Modern Sri Lanka enjoys well-deserved respect in the world as a sovereign, democratic, and socially oriented state. Its citizens are rightfully proud not only of their ancient history, but also of their great achievements in the field of economic development.   


Russian-Sri Lankan bilateral ties have invariably remained constructive since they were established. We maintain political contacts, including at the highest and high levels, and cooperate productively on the international arena, at the UN and other multilateral platforms.
