SOCHI, May 18. /TASS/. Greece has not asked Russia for financial aid and this matter is not reviewed, Russia’s Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on Wednesday.
"There have been no requests from Greece [concerning financial aid - TASS]. Provision of support to Greece is not considered," Siluanov said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin may visit Greece in several weeks, president’s aide Yuri Ushakov said earlier.
In 2015 Greek mass media reported plans of the country to look for new funding sources, particularly in China and Russia. However, Russian authorities did not confirm the fact of formal application for help from Greece.
