On Monday, the Kremlin media office said that President V V Putin discussed the outcome of the Greek referendum with Hellenic Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, and expressed his support to the Greek people in overcoming future difficulties in the country. On Sunday, more than 61 percent of Greek voters rejected the lender-proposed bailout plan, which stipulated spending cuts and tax increases in exchange for further financial assistance to the country. Several rounds of fruitless talks between Athens and its major international creditors (the European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the Eurogroup) preceded the referendum. The Kremlin statement noted, “[The sides] discussed the outcome of the referendum that took place in Greece on the conditions of international creditors providing Athens with financial aid, as well as several issues of further development of Greek-Russian coöperation”.
