An agreement on the supply of military products has been signed between the governments of Russia and Greece, the press service of the Russian Defense Ministry reported to REGNUM 3 in December.


"We signed an agreement that opens new frontiers, new horizons for our future work in the field of military-technical cooperation," Sergei Shoigu, the head of the Russian military department, explained the essence and significance of the document. “It concerns both already supplied weapons systems and military equipment, their service, and new equipment.”

Speaking about the results of the negotiations held in Athens, Army General Sergei Shoigu noted that the Russian military delegation "worked well and had quite productive negotiations with our Greek colleagues."

"We summed up the results of 2013 of the year on military-technical cooperation and reviewed the plan for the next year, which we plan to approve in the near future. Our experts are now thoroughly engaged in its details, they relate to various aspects of our cooperation, including along the lines of fleets explained the Minister of Defense of Russia.

In turn, the Greek Defense Minister Dimitris Avramopoulos stressed that "military cooperation between the two countries should be further deepened and strengthened, especially by promoting its qualitative aspect."

"We have an annual program of military cooperation, which was important to give a new dynamic. I am sure that the visit of the Russian Defense Minister will fully serve these goals. We will expand the horizons of our relations, find new fields for interaction. All this is ultimately directed to the benefit of our countries, to strengthen security in our rather troubled region, "said Avramopoulos.

An agreement signed in Athens between the governments of Russia and Greece on the supply of military products was also commented in a conversation with journalists by a member of the Russian military delegation, Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov: "This document will eliminate the existing barriers in military technology cooperation and optimize cooperation between defense enterprises our countries.

        By the way, the dosihpor world lives in the era of Hellenic civilization. Greece also has the world's largest merchant fleet, which we never even had in mind. Of all the NATO states, only Greece is friendly to Russia, even more friendly than Ukraine. If you look at the Greek army, we will see a well-balanced structure equipped with modern weapons. And the deplorable economic condition in which it is now arriving is a once prosperous state, it is a good example of Euro integration, a good example for Ukrainians and others who want to try the good of modern Europe. The main negative factor for Greece was the decline in the country's economic resources in comparison with their main enemy, Turkey, which makes good use of its monetary unit, the lira, and due to its cheapness compared to the euro, Turkey reached very decent economic indicators over a decade. In this regard, to my heart I do not understand the Greek perseverance in the vote against Turkey’s entry into the European Union. If Turkey has entered, it is also now asking for alms from Germany. In general, the European Union from rich countries made the countries even richer, and made the less wealthy just poor and now these rich countries dictate their conditions to the poor. The business of rich countries buys the assets of the poor for a penny. Here's a situation like this. Sincerely.

      Yes, Greece is a member of NATO, but Russian weapons are also in service.
      At various times, the Greek Ministry of Defense acquired from Russia and adopted, integrating them into a single national air defense system, the following anti-aircraft missile systems:
      - С-300ПМУ1 (in 1996, a contract was signed for two divisions - 12 launchers - of the complex С-300ПМУ1 with Cyprus, but due to tough opposition from Turkey, the complexes were transferred to the Greek military and relocated to the island of Crete, and the Cyprus Armed Forces were received in return Osa-AKM and Puma helicopters, and subsequently acquired also Tor-M1 air defense systems);
      - “Tor-M1” (during 1999 – 2002, 31 combat vehicle — launcher and eight battery command posts of this air defense system were delivered, an option was provided for 29 combat vehicles by the contract; a number of Tor-M1 air defense systems were transferred to the Cyprus Armed Forces in exchange for the latest Russian-made air defense systems S-300ПМУ1);
      - Osa-AKM (in the 1992 year 12 of the Osa-AKM air defense system was transferred to Greece from the arsenal of the armed forces of the united Germany, and in the 1997 year Russia delivered the 16 air defense system of the Osa-AKM).
      In addition, Russia supplied the Greek Navy with three small hovercraft (MDKVP) of the 12322 Zubr project (the fourth ship was delivered by Ukraine), which in terms of their tactical and technical elements are any analogues armed with the naval forces of foreign countries . According to the experience of many years of operation, they have proven themselves in the conditions of a regional theater.
      They also delivered the Kornet-E anti-tank missile system (near 200); RPG-18 hand-held anti-tank grenade launchers (of the order of 18 thousand units), as well as two Mi-26 heavy military transport helicopters. The special forces and a number of units of the Greek Navy are armed with AK-74 assault rifles, the troops have a significant number of ZU-23-2 anti-aircraft gun mounts, and BMP-400 infantry fighting vehicles are located at storage bases near 1. The armored vehicles were obtained from Germany (initially the Bundeswehr transferred 500 armored vehicles), which at one time was supposed to be modernized, but then this project was frozen. In addition, in order to closer cooperation in the military-technical field and to improve the quality of after-sales services for Russian military hardware, a corresponding organization was created - the joint Russian-Greek enterprise Rosoboronservis-Hellas.

    Greece is a member of NATO. NATO countries can acquire weapons that suit them best on the international market.
    Russia will supply new weapons, repair and modernize old ones, which Greece already has, for example, airborne Zubrs. Russia will begin to implement the deal with Greece after Greece pays the advance. BUT! What money does Greece have ?! All in debt, as in silks. How will you pay off? Olive oil? So they don't produce so much to pay for Russian weapons. Or will they raise the price of oil for Russia? Then the Russians will pay for weapons for Greece, when buying this oil, from their pockets.

        In the Czech Republic a little money left. Not everything has been stolen yet. smile The heavy, machine-tool and machine-building industries work, and for export. Businesses pay taxes.
        But Greece is unlikely to pay the ports. This is where NATO commitments will not allow. Maybe so go to the raid, get drunk water.

      This does not mean that contracts will be signed tomorrow.
      Everything is designed for the future, and the arms contracts themselves are most often prepared from a year or more.

      If there is no money, then how can they be given for defense? This then badly affects the health of the government, and the state may cease to exist. And to use other people's money for their purchases, and then also not to repay the debt? After all, they can put a hot iron on their faces.
