MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent a telegram to Alexis Tsipras congratulating him on the victory of the Coalition of the Radical Left (Syriza) in the election to the Greek parliament, the Kremlin press service said on Monday.
"In the telegram, the head of the Russian state expressed hope for continuing constructive dialogue and active joint work on further strengthening mutually beneficial Russian-Greek cooperation in different spheres, including trade and economy, energy and humanitarian spheres," the Kremlin noted.
The Coalition of the Radical Left (Syriza) of Alexis Tsipras won Sunday’s early parliamentary elections in Greece gaining 35.47% of the vote, Greece’s Interior Ministry said after 98.25% of the cast ballots were counted.
