MOSCOW, February 5. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin in a telephone conversation on Thursday congratulated Alexis Tsipras on the election victory and taking office of the Prime Minister of Greece, Russian presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said.
"The conversation was very cordial and constructive. Putin invited Tsipras to visit Russia at any convenient time," he said.
"The sides confirmed the intention to actively develop bilateral relations," Ushakov said.
The Russian presidential aide also said that during the conversation, Putin discussed with Greek Prime Minister Tsipras the situation in Ukraine and other international issues, including the situation with the South Stream and Turkish Stream gas pipelines.
