    The European Central Bank is expected to end the emergency assistance to Greek banks on Sunday, the BBC reported, citing its own sources.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the BBC source, Greece will probably have to announce a bank holiday on Monday to introduce capital controls – restrictions on customers’ withdrawals — if the European Central Bank decides to end the funding.

    Athens and its major international creditors, including the European Central Bank, have until Tuesday to hammer out a deal to prevent Greece from defaulting on its massive debt, which could contribute to pushing the country out of the Eurozone.
