The reaction of the Russian Embassy in Greece was provoked by today’s statements of Pompeo from Crete.
“This is not the first time that American officials have tried in their public statements to draw Greece to the anti-Russian front. Such anti-Russian hysteria can hardly find a response in the Greek people” the Russian Embassy said in a comment.
It is recalled that the American Foreign Minister noted in his statements that the Greek-American cooperation is particularly important as Russia continues its destabilizing role in the region and especially in Libya. He also agreed with the Greek Prime Minister to explore further cooperation in order to meet the challenges posed by Russia through harmful influences, such as spreading misinformation about the pandemic and trying to integrate the Orthodox Church into its plans.
