Moscow Next Stop for Greek PM Tsipras After Monday’s Visit to Berlin


The next stop of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, after his upcoming official visit to Berlin, will be Moscow. According to Greek media, Tsipras, who is in constant communication with foreign leaders seeking support to solve the country’s economic riddle, will visit the Russian capital on April 8. The announcement came just a few hours after Tsipras has accepted an invitation by German Chancellor Angela Merkel to visit Berlin on Monday, March 23.

It should be noted that Greece’s first leftist Prime Minister was scheduled to visit Moscow on the occasion of the 70th anniversary since the end of World War II in Europe but the visit was decided to be brought forward after a Greek initiative, as sources from both countries confirmed. Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades is also invited to attend the Victory Day (May 9) celebrations.

Meetings of substance and not for the sake of photographs

According to sources close to the Greek government, Tsipras’ meetings abroad are of great significance and not just for the sake of appearance. Regarding the upcoming meeting with the German Chancellor, Greek government spokesperson Gavriil Sakellaridis said on Thursday that “this will be a meeting of substance, and not just for the sake of photographs,” leaving an insinuation for the previous government’s effectiveness in such meetings. “Obviously the issue of liquidity will also be on the table,” he concluded.


  1. Orthodox countries are spiritual siblings. Greece should seek good relations with Russia, who will help it.

  2. Orthodoxy made Greece into a bad country. Orthodoxy is a religion for ignorant people. The vile Orthodox priests have turned Greece into a Orthodox theocracy.

  3. I believe that before being rude about a faith/religion being ‘ignorant’, one should look at one’s own religion and faith. However, I will not be rude to you, my Turkish brother, because I love Turkish people and just as I respect the Orthodox Christian religion, I also respect the true Muslim religion of pious and kind and humble people. Greek priests are not vile my friend. They are humble servants of God; though like any human being there may be those who are more saintly than others. As for Greece being a ‘theocracy’, what exactly would you call what Mr. Erdogan is trying to do with Turkey. Peace, brother–As-salamu alaykum!

  4. He is not a dictator. You are believing the biased, propaganda machine called the Western media.
