ST. PETERSBURG, June 19. /TASS/. Kremlin believes it is early to discuss Russia’s financial aid to debt-laden Greece in the absence of Athens’ request, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
The Kremlin spokesman commented on the upcoming meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.
"It is first necessary to hear some proposals or some initiatives from our Greek partners to consider this issue," the Kremlin spokesman said.
‘Let us first wait for the negotiations. This is an abstract discussion without any specific requests or proposals, this is a short-sighted approach," Peskov said.
"Let’s wait for the talk and then we’ll inform you," Peskov said.
Russia's Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told RT TV channel on Firday that Russia is ready to consider providing financial assistance to Greece.
"We will support any decision [on solving the Greek debt crisis] which will be proposed by Greece and our European partners. Investment projects and trade with Greece are priority for us. If they need financial assistance, we will consider this issues," Dvorkovich said.
