Greece complained about the U.S. pressure
The Minister of defense of Greece Panos Kammenos met with the Deputy Minister of defense of the United States Christine Wormuth, and the Pentagon urged from Athens to extend anti-Russian punishment.

The Greek Minister explained that there are financial and cultural reasons why this is a solution for powers is undesirable.

That the main organizer of the anti-Russian sanctions was made by Washington, which forced the rest of the government to follow its chosen course, experts said at once. However the evidence of this precedent at the highest level started to appear recently.

About pressure from the United States, which interfere in the decisions of a sovereign state, said the Minister of defense of Greece Panos Kammenos. Proper demand was made at his meeting with Deputy Minister of defense of the United States Christine Wormuth.

"I was asked to continue the sanctions, particularly in relation to the Crimea", - quotes the civil servant RIA Novosti. Cyprus will bother to explain to the American colleague that the punishment is directly contrary to the domestic interests of the state.

Athens build a close and trusting relationship not only cultural, but also due to financial reasons. "I explained: besides the fact that Russia is considered to be allied and friendly country with which we have unbreakable bonds through joint religion, and we have financial relations", - said the head of the Greek defense Minister.

"The costs of Greece on penalties in the year amount to about 4 billion euros. We arrive each year, 1.5 million travelers from Russia. We export agricultural products. I explained that the European Union pays the costs of the Greek farmers on these issues," he added.

Moscow and Athens managed to establish a relationship so that the powers have made solid progress in military-technical cooperation, despite the fact that Greece is part of NATO. Domestic armament works in the NATO system, namely the s-300 are guarding a military base in Crete.
