There could be serious repercussions if Greece fails to reach an agreement on their debt with the Eurozone, and turns to Russia instead, experts have warned.
The Greek Defence Minister Panos Kammenos said his country may be forced to carry out a “plan B” if a new bailout deal can’t be negotiated with the rest of the Eurozone ….
Dr Jonathan Eyal from defence and security think tank the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) called Kammenos’ statement an “unbecoming threat from a NATO member state.”
He told Newsweek: “It’s another reminder that the Greeks have never offered the kind of solidarity to Europe that Europe has shown to Greece.”
“It’s very obvious the Russians have an opportunity to subsidize a country that can stop a consensus that is required to keep up sanctions on Russia. It’s very grave indeed. The repercussions of this could be quite serious depending on what Greece do in return.”
