Greece urges halt to Western sanctions against Russia

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has criticized the sanctions against Russia, urging an end to the measures taken by the West over the crisis in Ukraine.

“To get out of this profound crisis we need to leave behind this vicious cycle of sanctions,” Tsipras said following talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Wednesday.

Moscow has been targeted by a series of sanctions imposed by the United States and the European Union over allegations of having a role in the conflict in eastern Ukraine. The Kremlin says the accusation is “groundless.”

In a tit-for-tat move, Russia has also enforced restrictions on certain food imports from the United States, the EU, Canada, Australia and Norway.
