    Russian President Vladimir Putin and IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde have discussed the outcome of Sunday’s referendum in Greece over the phone, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Kremlin spokesman said that the sides did not talk about the possibility of Russia providing Greece with financial aid.

    “This was not about Russia helping Greece.” “The talk was initiated by the Russian side, President Putin. Issues regarding Russia’s cooperation with the International Monetary Fund in the context of the referendum, which took place yesterday in Greece, were discussed.”

    "Hope was expressed that the search for an optimal solution to the Greek debt issue will continue," Peskov said.
