After he took up office, Greece’s new left-wing government has expressed doubts about EU’s sanctions on Russia but finally agreed to expand the lists of travel bans and asset freezes in pursuant to EU sanctions.

Recently Kitzias said the Greek government will not easily approve the extension or increase of imposing economic sanctions on Russia. He noted that Greece doesn’t want the EU policy to be based on the interests of the countries, which historically have too emotional relations with Russia
