    Athens will not tolerate any external pressure to deprive Russian warships of refueling in Greek ports.

    ATHENS (Sputnik) — Athens will continue allowing Russian warships to resupply in Greek ports and will not tolerate any pressure in regard to its relations with Moscow, a source in the Greek Defense Ministry said Friday.

    "Everything will be fine with the Russian fleet, they [the Russian warships] will be able to dock and will be properly resupplied in Greece," the source told RIA Novosti.

    "And, of course, we will not tolerate any pressure regarding a ban on refueling Russian vessels. All discussions on this issue have been stopped," the source said.
