ATHENS, Sputnik Press-Office – Sputnik has opened a bureau in Athens. It is the agency’s 23rd representative office abroad and the only Russian news agency publishing in the Greek language.

Sputnik Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan commented:

“As they say, Greece has everything. However, there was no full-time media outlet covering international events and offering opinions and facts different from the European mainstream media. We fixed that. Good luck to our journalists and congratulations to the Greek bureau.”

Russian Deputy Minister of Communications and Mass Media Alexei Volin, said:

“This is the best outcome of the recent year of Russia-Greece cooperation. The traditionally friendly relations between the two nations should have long been supplemented with a major media project.” 

A recent study by Sputnik has revealed that an absolute majority of Greek people (81%) are interested in getting diverse information about events in their country and the world.
