For a small country like Sri Lanka, it is essential to find a new balance between external scope and internal stability. For example, the use of Russian billionaires could help Sri Lanka use foreign direct investment. For Russia, Sri Lanka`s geographical location is a bonus for access to the Indian consumer market of $1.3 billion through the Indo-Lanka Free Trade Agreement (ISFTA). Both agreements were signed by Kapila Waidyaratne, Secretary, Ministry of Defense of the Sri Lankan Side, while Mihail Petukhov, Deputy Director of the FSMTC signed the working group of the Newspaper of Mandates and Colonel General Alexander Fomin, Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation signed the agreement of military technical cooperation of the Russian side. The agreement on trade and economic and scientific and technological cooperation until 2010 was signed in New Delhi in December 1998 to promote bilateral trade and economic interaction between the two nations qualitatively. Therefore, economic interaction and trade are key priorities. In the trade field, India and Russia have called for the development and development of economic relations in priority areas in order to achieve the bilateral trade target of $30 billion by 2025. The Eurasian Economic Union (EU) and India Trade Pact is a proposed platform that will be used by both countries to ensure free trade flow and remove trade barriers, as they do not currently have bilateral free trade agreements.

Disagreements over the use of “harijan” for Dalits date back to the 1930s. “Harijan,” which means “children of God,” was a term first used by Gandhi for Dalits in 1932. When Gandhi began to use the term, many, including B.R. Ambedkar, because he was condescending and obscenistic, contradicted an attempt to circumvent the real problem. On 3 and 6 December 1956, the Soviet Union insinuated diplomatic relations with Sri Lanka. In 1958, the USSR and Sri Lanka signed an agreement on economic and technical cooperation. In 1967, with the support of the Soviet Union, they built a steel mill (production capacity – 50,000 tons of warehouses per year), a tire factory and a construction materials factory near Colombo.
