The Russian Ambassador in Sri Lanka is surprised at the language used in the Darusman Report that contains baseless allegations against Sri Lanka.

In a special interview, Vladimir Mikhailov said he had agreed with the views of expressed by Sri Lanka’s External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L Peiris that the Report was a counterproductive. The Russian diplomat expressed concern and regretted over the definitions used in that report – ‘Tamil and Sinhala peoples of Sri Lanka’ meaning there were two different types of people living in the island nation. Mr. Mikhailov lamented that the Darusman Report had described the LTTE as the most disciplined and nationalist militant group when it was recognized as terrorist outfit by many governments in the world.
