'Media Tends to Overstate Link Between Greece's Syriza Party & Russia'
9 February, 2015

Despite photographs of Greece's newest foreign minister, Nikos Kotzia, standing near Russian nationalist Aleksandr Dugin, there are very flimsy ties between Greece's new government and the Kremlin, said Yiannis Baboulias, a Greek journalist.

While it might be politically advantageous for Greek lawmakers to be perceived in the European Union as having ties to Russia, in reality, these ties are very, very loose, Baboulias explained.

Yiannis Baboulias spoke with Hromadske International's Ian Bateson and Angelina Kariakina on Feb. 8, 2015.
