Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis gets involved in anti-Russian rhetoric. Mitsotakis, educated in America, is firmly on the pro-American side against the traditional friend of the Russian Federation. Therefore, although Greece is plagued with a major deficit and high debt which amounts to 189% of GDP, it continues to support Ukraine militarily.

Greek Cypriots (Cypriot Greeks) still have part of their island occupied by NATO Turkey. This occupation leads to the erasure of Orthodox Christianity in occupied northern Cyprus and demographic changes. However, it seems that Mitsotakis is more concerned about America’s bidding regarding the events in Ukraine and the indigenous Russians and non-ethnic Russians who support the Russian Federation in the Donbass. (Donbass) Region.

Pasok – an opposition party in Greece – claims that intelligence services spied on the leader of this political party. This is about Predator (Spyware) and telephone tapping. If true, it says a lot about the European Union today and paints a negative picture of Greece under Mitsotakis.

Nikos Androukalis, the leader of Pasok, said: “I did not expect the Greek government to follow me with these darkest practices. All this proves that Mitsotakis and his government are exposing the country internationally.

reports Reuters, “There are also concerns. Mitsotakis didn’t seem very interested in fighting corruption. He actually has wiped it off A clean slate for many financiers charged with criminal breach of trust and gave what amounted to an amnesty to major tax evaders. He also centralized power, changing the law to place the intelligence service under his office.

The European Union (EU) seems to throw away fiscal conservatism and outright racism “out of bed”. From anti-Russian statements that seek to ban Russians from entering the EU – to endless propaganda that pokes fun at Russian culture with geopolitical biases that only support the Ukrainian nationalist narrative. After all, the Russians in the Donbass (Donbass) region – and pro-Russians from several non-Russian ethnic groups who fear Ukrainian nationalism – naturally exist regarding Ukraine’s bombardments in this region since 2014 (following anti-Russian linguistic and cultural policies in Ukraine).

A senior European legislator (reports Bloomberg) suggests that the European Union – and the Greek government – must investigate the spyware scandal thoroughly and quickly. It’s about spyware (Predator) used against a senior politician and a journalist.

Nikos Marantzidis, professor of Balkan, Slavic and Oriental studies at the University of Macedonia, said: “Greek public opinion has a Russophile dimension, friendly feelings linked to history, a common culture based on orthodoxy and for some, a distrust of the West.”

Mitsotakis and his anti-Russian Federation stance are weakened by his lack of interest in fighting corruption, the spyware scandal and other negative angles under his leadership. What has NATO done for the Orthodox Christian Serbs in Kosovo and the Orthodox Christians in Northern Cyprus?

If Greece faces further economic convulsions, corruption is continually swept under the rug, the spyware scandal escalates and other ills – Mitsotakis will come under increasing pressure.
