on the social network “Twitter”
The Embassy of the Russian Federation in the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and to the Republic of Maldives is pleased to inform that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation has launched Twitter accounts in English and Russian: MFA_Russia and MID_RF, respectively.
The news blogs will provide information on the most significant international events and publish announcements of events involving top officials of the Russian Foreign Ministry.
The main objective is to raise awareness about the Russian foreign policy and make Russia’s foreign priorities accessible to large audience.
The new resource will also be useful to the Russians who are overseas. Subscribers will be able to receive alerts to their cell phones about emergencies in countries of sojourn.
