What will Greek PM walk away with after Kremlin meeting?

Text size Aa Aa

All eyes are on the Kremlin to see what transpires in a controversial meeting between the Greek and Russian leaders.

The Greek Prime Minister is insisting he has not asked Moscow for any money to help meet its debt repayments, saying he wants to work within the framework of the EU.

Alexis Tsipras laid a wreath on Wednesday at the Tomb of the Unkown Soldier in Moscow, a day before a new deadline for debt repayments.

Eyebrows were raised this week when Russian media hinted that President Putin may offer gas discounts and even new loans to Greece.

A Russian minister has also said Greece could be removed from Moscow’s ban on Western food imports.

This led to a warning from the European Parliament President, Martin Schulz, for Greece to stick to the EU position on sanctions against Russia.
