The main saboteur of this diplomatic drive is Udayanga Weeratunga, the notorious Rajapaksa crony. Accused of fraud over his shady deals with Ukraine, he is still dancing to the tune of Ukrainian companies. Ukraine Nash, blacklisted in India and many other countries for having violated business deals, is pumping money to disrupt Sri Lanka’s ties with Russia. Its local agent is CEO of Lanka Logistics Dr. Lalith Liyanage.
At a time it is at odds with Russia, Ukraine is trying to isolate its opponent internationally by sabotaging its ties with other countries.
Weeratunga continues to serve the racketeers after misusing public property and committing financial fraud during the previous regime. It is not a secret that money-hungry persons like him will do any bidding of racketeers.
Despite whatever efforts are taken by the government to win over the world community, it should see that no harm comes from notorious racketeers. Furthermore, legal action against them should be made more strong, or else Sri Lanka will become internationally isolated under the ‘Yahapaalana’ government too.
