Russia has received an appeal from Sri Lanka for help in overcoming the energy crisis in the country and Russia is now considering the next steps to provide assistance, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Thursday according to foreign media.

Last Thursday, Sri Lankan Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera told reporters that Colombo is counting on Moscow to help overcome the energy crisis and acute shortage of energy resources by receiving Russian oil supplies.

“We can confirm that such appeals have indeed been received by the Government of the Russian Federation and the Russian Embassy in Sri Lanka,” the ministry has told the media.

The ministry added that the question of how Moscow can help Colombo is still under consideration and that it is too early to talk about concrete steps.
