"We have obtained assurances from the Ambassador of Greece to Ukraine that the information about the statements of the Minister of Defense of Greece on Ukraine, which was published in the Russian newspaper Gazeta.ru is untrue. According to the Ambassador, such statements were not made and this is another fake spread by the Russian propaganda," he said.
According to Perebyinis, the Ambassador of Greece stressed that the government's official position remains unchanged - Greece condemns Russia's occupation of Crimea. It was demonstrated by Greece's support of a number of the EU's statements as well as confirmed by the Greek Foreign Minister during his visit to Kyiv.
"In this case we are dealing with yet another blatant misinformation on the part of the Russian mass media that use the dirtiest methods and outright lies to mislead the international community and to distract attention from their own crimes related to the invasion of Crimea and aggression in the Donbas," speaker of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.
