It is recalled that the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs protested to the Russian ambassador to Greece. The Russian embassy denied in a statement that Saturday’s bombing in the village of Sartana was carried out by the Russian air force and called Greek politicians and journalists as “parrots”.

The Greek Foreign Minister replied that there is evidence that shows with certainty that the bombings were carried out by the Russian side.
