Greece may receive financial aid from Russia

Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov

Greece: Finance Minister Anton Siluanov this week suggested  that Russia would  consider providing financial assistance to Greece, if its government asked.  “We can imagine a situation that, if such a request will go to the Government of the Russian Federation, we will consider it, but we will take into account all the factors relating to our bilateral relations between Russia and Greece – that’s all I can say,” Siluanov said. Since its new government was sworn in on Monday, Greece has been outspoken in its opposition to the imposition by the EU of further sanctions on Russia. Rosbalt
