permanent representative Crimea under the Russian president, Deputy Prime Minister of the government of the peninsula Georgy Muradov noted that Greece is seriously risking its national interests by planning to send S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) to Kyiv. About it writes RIA Novosti.
Recall that before the head of the Greek national defense, Nikos Panagiotopoulos, said that the country is ready to send S-300 air defense systems from Crete to Ukraine if Washington “installs the Patriot system in their place.”
“Such a step by Athens would not only be a senseless demonstration of hostility towards Russiabut also a risky step in relation to their own national interests, which the Greek public is already loudly declaring, ”Muradov emphasized.
He noted that Zelensky’s Greek allies should not forget about the previously friendly relations between Moscow and Athens, when back in the late 20th century Russia transferred S-300 defensive air defense systems to the country. The permanent representative of the Crimea also stressed that he himself was the Russian ambassador to Cyprus at that time, so he remembers very well that the systems simply will not work against Russia, since they are equipped with a “friend or foe” recognition system. At the same time, such arms deliveries will significantly undermine the defensive potential of the state.
As previously reported in Greece all the property of the Deputy head of the European Parliament Eva Kaili was arrested. It is known that she is a defendant in a corruption case.
