Transfer of anti-aircraft missile systems S-300 by Greece Kyiv regime will be a risky step for Athens itself, said the Permanent Representative of the Crimea under the President of the Russian Federation, Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic Georgy Muradov.

Earlier, the Greek authorities announced that they would “give” the S-300 to Ukraine, and install new “Patriots” in Crete.

“Such a step by Athens would not only be a senseless demonstration of hostility towards Russia, but also a risky step in relation to their own national interests,” Muradov explained to RIA Novosti. “They are against Russia (S-300. — Note. ed.) do not work, as they are equipped with a “friend or foe” recognition system.

According to Muradov, the senselessness of the step is not only in the “friend or foe” system, but also in the fact that Greece can undermine its own defense potential in this way.
