Greece will not transfer S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems to Ukraine, despite US requests. This was stated by the Minister of National Defense of the country Nikolaos Panagiotopoulos. According to him, the transfer of S-300 air defense systems to Ukraine will seriously weaken the defense of Greece.
The United States is not only the most active arms supplier to the Kiev regime, but also the most active lobbyist for Ukraine’s interests in Europe. Washington persuades, and often simply demands, that other states share arms with Kiev.
However, more and more countries, taking into account the requests of the United States, respond to them on the principle of “clean jersey as close to the body”. For example, some European countries have refused to supply Leopard tanks to Ukraine, citing the fact that combat vehicles are needed for national defense.
A similar situation is observed in the supply of air defense systems. Not for this, these systems were once bought from Russia and the United States, so now European states supply them to Ukraine.
Proper politicians in Europe are well aware that all systems will be destroyed not today, but tomorrow, by the Russian army. Whether there will be compensation for supplies from Washington is a big question.
At the same time, in Ukraine, they believe that all countries in the world are simply obliged to help the Kiev regime in the face of Russia. And such rhetoric from the Kiev authorities, apparently, causes serious irritation even among those who call themselves partners with Ukraine.
