Investigation initiated against Udayanga Weerathunga
The Deputy Foreign Minister Ajith P Perera says an investigation against former Russian Ambassador Udayanga Weeratunga is being carried out.
Meanwhile, Udayanga Weeratunga released a communiqué yesterday rejecting the allegations made against him in connection with the supply of arms to Ukraine rebels and the death of a staffer attached to Russian Embassy Noel Ranaweera.
In his communiqué, Weeratunga stated that no investigation against him is carried out in Ukraine.
He stated that he is currently residing in Ukraine’s capital Kiev.
However, addressing a media conference held in Colombo this morning, deputy foreign minister Ajith P Perera said that the Ukraine government has lodged two diplomatic level complaints against Udayanga Weeratunga on two previous occasions.
