A bit of information:

The interesting thing about Grease is that even though it is in NATO (anti Russian club) it still has excellent ties with Russia. Last year Russia gave Grease new military equipment, and also allowed Russia to use its agean waters to practice some ",military exercises". I find it remarkable that NATO still puts up with Grease's back stabbing difficult manner of politics.

And remember it was Russia that pretty much achieved the Greek Independence from the Ottomans, and Russia did side with Grease in both Balkan wars and the first world war.

Both countries have very good relations.
