ST.PETERSBURG, June 18. /TASS/. Greece has not officially asked Russia for financial aid, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov told reporters on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.
"This did not happen. On the official level it did not take place," - the minister said.
Since 2010, when Greece faced the crisis of its sovereign debt, the EU and IMF have granted nearly €250 billion to Athens.
Despite the partial write-off of Greece’s debt in 2012, its public debt now exceeds €315 billion, which is 175% of GDP.
