Russia Won't Support Greece Financially - Official

Russia currently has no plans to assist Greece with money, as "such expenses are not included in the federal budget law", Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergey Storchak said.

      "As of today, I rule out the possibility of financial support to Greece, because such funds are not stipulated in the federal budget law,” Storchak told the Russian press.

      Earlier on February 10, Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said that Russia would consider the question of providing financial aid to Greece if Athens asked Moscow to. However, earlier in the month his Greek counterpart Yanis Varoufakis said that Greece would not request financial assistance from Russia.

      Greece’s debt to the creditors comprising the European Union, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund currently stands at about $270 billion. Last week, Athens and Eurozone finance ministers reached an agreement to extend the deadline for Greece’s bailout for another four months.
