Greece Makes The Choice.

Regarding Russian-made Tor-M1 and Osa-AKM air defense complexes.

АФИНЫ, 25 авг — РИА Новости. Греция расторгнет контракт с Россией на техническое обслуживание зенитных ракетных комплексов "Тор-М1" и "Оса-АКМ", пишет портал "Конец эпохи российских систем вооружения в греческих вооруженных силах — правительство приняло решение отказаться от программы поддержки вооружений и не подписывать новые контракты на поддержку (FOS). В сверхсекретном документе, просочившемся через парламент, министр национальной обороны Никос Дендиас объявляет, что новых контрактов на поддержку, то есть закупку запасных частей и услуг, мобильных зенитных ракетных комплексов малой дальности "Тор-М1" и более старых "Оса-АКМ" не будет", — говорится в публикации.
Translation: ATHENS, August 25 - RIA Novosti. Greece will terminate the contract with Russia for the maintenance of anti-aircraft missile systems "Tor-M1" and "Osa-AKM", writes the portal "The end of the era of Russian weapons systems in the Greek armed forces - the government has decided to abandon the weapons support program and not sign new support contracts (FOS). In a top-secret document leaked through parliament, the Minister of National Defense Nikos Dendias announces that new support contracts , that is, there will be no purchase of spare parts and services, mobile short-range anti-aircraft missile systems Tor-M1 and older Osa-AKM," the publication says.
There is absolutely nothing surprising about it and clearing the air defense market of Greece for US/British SHORAD is in progress. It is also a part of the knee jerk reaction to immensely important BRICS expansion and the death sentence to Petrodollar. Sad, but expected--Greece is a part of "modern" West, or whatever passes for it nowadays, and NATO cannot tolerate Russian weapon systems, even not the latest ones, which performed brilliantly in SMO. I guess it is mental and emotional thing for NATO.
