Greece’s tourism industry has suffered from anti-Russian sanctions – in the summer, almost none of the Russians came to the country. This was stated by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Tuesday, November 1.
Instead of Greece, Russian citizens went on vacation to Turkey, informs TASS. “So we paid the price by faithfully implementing the sanctions package, and I am convinced that we did the right thing,” Mitsotakis said.
As for military assistance to Kyiv, according to the Prime Minister, Greece has provided great support to Ukraine. “For obvious reasons, I will not go into details, but the Ukrainians are very pleased with the help that we offered them, and there were no complaints about its provision,” Mitsotakis stressed.
Earlier it was known that Kyiv will receive from Athens armored infantry vehicles that were in service with the GDR army and were transferred to Greece by Berlin. “Soon they will arrive in our army and instantly increase the combat capability and defense capability of our country,” the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine said during a joint press conference with his Greek counterpart. According to him, Kyiv especially appreciates the weapons that Athens gives him.
