The US State Department announced the independence of Greece in deciding on the possible supply of S-300 air defense systems to Ukraine

Greece should decide on its own to transfer S-300 anti-aircraft systems to Ukraine, but the US would welcome such a move, US State Department spokesman Ned Price said.


The United States is not against the supply of air defense systems to Ukraine, which is in dire need of anti-aircraft systems, but decisions about this should be made by those countries to whom these systems belong. This statement was made by Ned Price, commenting on the possible supply of S-300 anti-aircraft systems from the presence of the Greek army to Kyiv.

Each country must decide for itself what it is able to prepare and provide to Ukraine. And we certainly appreciate the many ways in which the international community, including Greece, has shown its support.

- he said.

The representative of the State Department, of course, is disingenuous, rather, even lying, speaking about the independence of decisions on the supply of weapons to Kyiv. No NATO country, including Greece, will transfer its complexes to Ukraine without the permission of Washington. It is the United States that decides which weapons to deliver to Kyiv and which cannot, and also determines which country and what exactly should deliver, even if it does not want to. The owners must be obeyed.

Earlier in Athens, they said they were ready to supply S-300 air defense systems to Ukraine if the United States replaced the Russian complex with American Patriot air defense systems. Moscow, in turn, warned Greece that sending the S-300 anti-aircraft system to Kyiv would grossly violate the Russian-Greek intergovernmental agreement on military-technical cooperation dated October 30, 1995 and on the supply of military products dated December 3, 2013, prohibiting Athens from transferring Russian military products to a third party without the consent of Russia.

      They do not care that the Greeks will not deliver the S-300 to Ukraine.

        Yes, yes, everyone in the world already knows and saw in Greece its "independence" - from Washington!

          Yes, this is obvious, no matter how the Greeks smiled. the Bulgarians did not admire, the Turks did not applaud and the Hungarians did not resist, they are all in bondage from the USA and its European "civilized" satellites in the form of Great Britain, France and Germany. To do something independent, they can as much as they can let them.

      Gentlemen are hinting that this story is an initiative of Greece. And since the Greeks have shown the initiative, it is necessary to proceed from the fact that Greece has quite definitely decided for itself that it is not friendly towards Russia. And all that rot that wants to declare itself a lawyer for Greece is also not on the side of Russia.
      As for the deed, Sladkov rightly said, God forbid we forget, forgive this betrayal. And for such rotten countries as Greece, Bulgaria, Germany, Poland, Tribaltia, Czech Republic, Slovenia - Everything Russian should be (if at all) at least twice as expensive.

        Yes, but why would they then buy anything from the Russian Federation at all? What do you have that these countries will be willing to overpay for?

            Erdogan will manage without our support. It is much more important for him that we do not interfere, he will handle the rest himself. Greece and Armenia are the very cases. Yes, and Northern Cyprus has long been looking at Kosovo with surprise.

            For Greece, the Navy and Navy of France and Italy will fit in. This is enough for the eyes.

          It so happened historically that they do not have their own gas, and American gas costs 4 times more than ours. So, twice as expensive - it's also profitable)

      Yeah, funny on your own from the USA, it's like a voluntary-compulsory. The Greeks do not really know where this Ukraine is and what is happening there. The Americans will order, so they will also tie the ribbon during the transfer.

        And the funny thing is that quite recently, either the Poles or the Czechs wanted to convey something German. The Germans formally stood "in a pose" (not "in a position") of the type, without our consent it is impossible. And they didn't deliver.
        And on us, on EXACTLY THE SAME contracts with us, then you can spit.

        Who said anything about international law, or at least rules?

        Well... We don't remember evil, we write it down.
        And if, nevertheless, the arrogant Saxons do not bring things to the point that only cockroaches that are not afraid of radiation will remain on Earth, then everyone will want, as after the Second World War, to be "winners". They will start looking for some "invisible partisans", "Resistance by non-resistance", who changed their shoes in time in flight of their kings - this is where we will get our records.

        Or maybe, well, fuck them, these Germans, Greeks, French and others? Talk about everything only with America? And is it easier for us to talk with those who make decisions, and is it nice for America to feel like the main one in Europe, not in fact, but also on paper? Is this what America wants? America will be happy, and everyone else will be more powerless than blacks in Africa 150 years ago, whom they also spread rot. The pendulum has swung...

    It all looks very much like what used to be called Ukraine is simply giving up.

    We believe! We believe that Greece itself, that is, voluntarily, without a kick in the ass, can transfer the S-300 to Ukraine.
    ps. For such cases, bookmarks should be left in the electronic filling.

      Especially in light of the latest "hugs" with Turkey.
      "Patriots" will or will not. And if so, when and how much. And the S-300s, here they are, standing.
      Is the brain of the Greeks so soft on the IMF loans?

    Not funny yourself? They seem to be trying to be serious people. Greece and independence today are incompatible concepts. So taken by the gills of those who drink coffee and crayfish on the terrace that they cannot even utter a word.

    The bottom line is that the Greeks have already stated that they will hand over the S-300s only on the condition that they be replaced by a Patriot. And this is the answer of the State Department - there will be no free air defense systems, but if you want to give your S-300s to xxx, we don't mind. But you will make up the supply yourself, at your own expense.

    I hope after such statements to Greece, we will no longer transfer any components and consumables to them, as well as carry out maintenance, they were also given to the Turks, and then it will come back to haunt

    With the Greek s-300, there is some kind of strange situation, most likely inoperative and expensive to repair. Nobody has been complying with the agreement for a long time, maybe they are looking at what is cheaper than Hoki from storage or doing three hundredth.

    "C" stands for independence. Independence is like in a patriarchal family: dad raised an eyebrow, and the kids nidayboh will not guess his unspoken desire. "$%@," the father said, and the children dropped their spoons. (with)
