Greek Prime Minister: Sanctions against Russia backfire

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said that European countries are aware of the negative consequences for their economies of the imposition of sanctions against Russia, but do not intend to change their strategy.

During his press conference in Thessaloniki, one of the journalists reminded him that the sanctions taken against Russia “are reflected and hit the economies of European countries”, and he wondered to what extent Europe is ready to continue and whether Europe and Russia will find ways to stop energy war, otherwise everything will reach a state of complete instability.

Mitsotakis responded: “From the very first moment we imposed very broad sanctions against Russia, which I would say are the most serious sanctions that have ever been imposed, we knew at the same time that our country would go through a difficult process. We warned that is the price of our choice.”

The Prime Minister of Greece said that “everyone knew that Russia could use gas as a weapon,” therefore they declared the need to rid Europe of dependence on Russian gas as soon as possible.

He said: “I think this process is irreversible and irreversible.”

He emphasized that he did not see the possibility of changing such a strategy, even if someone suggested it.
