The man behind Ukraine coup is now turning Greece against Russia (Video)

On July 11, Greece said it would expel two Russian diplomats and barred the entry of two others.

The Duran reported that the formal reason is alleged meddling in an attempt to foment opposition to the “historic” name deal between Athens and Skopje paving the way for Macedonia’s NATO membership. Moscow said it would respond in kind.

Nothing like this ever happened before. The relations between the two countries have traditionally been warm. This year Moscow and Athens mark the 190th anniversary of diplomatic relations and the 25th anniversary of the Treaty of Friendship and Cooperation between the Russian Federation and the Hellenic Republic. They have signed over 50 treaties and agreements.

Greek news daily, Kathimerini says the relationship started to gradually worsen behind the scenes about a couple of years ago. What happened back then? Geoffrey Pyatt assumed office as US Ambassador to Greece. Before the assignment he had served as ambassador to Ukraine in 2013-2016 at the time of Euromaidan – the events the US took active part in. He almost openly contributed into the Russia-Ukraine rift. Now it’s the turn of Greece. The ambassador has already warned Athens about the “malign influence of Russia”. He remains true to himself.

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris connect the dots between the Ukraine coup and Greece’s recent row with Russia, and the man who is in the middle of it all, US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt.

Actions similar to the expulsion of Russian diplomats from Greece do not remain without consequences, said spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

“We have an understanding that the people of Greece should communicate with their Russian partners, and not suffer from dirty provocations, into which, unfortunately, Athens was dragged,” Zakharova said at a briefing.

“Unfortunately, of course, we are talking about politics. Such things do not remain without consequences, do not disappear without a trace. Of course, unfortunately, all this darkens bilateral relations, without introducing any constructive principle,” she added.

On July 11, the Greek Kathimerini newspaper reported that Athens had decided to expel two Russian diplomats and ban two more from entering the country over illegal actions that threatened the country’s national security. The publication claimed that the diplomats attempted to intervene in a domestic issue, namely the changing of the name of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) to the Republic of North Macedonia, the agreement for which was brokered by Skopje and Athens last month.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has vowed to give a mirror response to Greece’s move.

Population of greece has altered dramatically, and in 2 generations time 2/3 rds of the population wont have fully greek grandparents. i think Russia will be a stronger, more reliable ally than the US. Pax America cant react quick enough to the economic strides one belt road is making now. Greece are pivotal in breaking the EU. If greece leaves EU. it doesnt pay back money owed to ECB. And UK and US will have turned EU states into another ME. Luckily US and NATO army bases will already be there for ‘Security’. come 2099 does anybody think US will… Read more »

Nuland went to Cyprus, Pyatt went to Greece, so who went to Malta?

The Greeks should protest to get Pyatt removed from office. This is real meddling of the worst kind. Europeans have to learn to speak up before it is too late for humanity.

So Turkey drifts away from Washington and Greece drifts closer. That’s politics folks. The Game goes on with the EU protectorate – Greece – dancing to the tune.

The LNG thing is a farce. There is no possible way to be even close to Russian gas pricing unless the US is willing to sell it at a huge loss. Transporting LNG is very problematic and must be done within time constraints as it will not remain in a liquid state forever. Anyone with knowledge of this kind of operation will say they are nuts.

Geoffrey R Pyatt, the Svoboda and PravySektor and Azov lover. It was minuted in Verkhovna Rada almost three years before Maidan that Pyatt was destabilising the country, ready for a coup, but Svoboda and Tyaggnybok lovers booed the speaker down.. Pyatt, the war criminal, who funded and aided Yatsenyuk and Turchinov in killing thousands of Novorossiyans. He should be taken out ASAP,. and with extreme prejudice.
