    Mihalis Psilos, president and general director of Athens-Macedonian News Agency, said that Greek audience wants to receive information about Russia and learn Russia’s stance on international developments.

    ST. PETERSBURG (Sputnik) Greek audience wants to receive information about Russia and learn Russia’s stance on international developments, Mihalis Psilos, president and general director of Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA-MPA) told Sputnik Thursday.

    On Thursday, Psilos and Rossiya Segodnya information agency Director General Dmitry Kiselev signed an agreement on cooperation and news wire exchange between the two agencies.

    "We want information about Russia and we want information about the Russian attitude to international relations," Psislos said.

    The two heads of news agencies noted the importance of having such a source of information both for Greece and for Russia, especially given "the current political and economic situation" the way Kiselev put it.

    "We are dreaming about direct information from Greece and about Greece," Kiselev said

    An ICM Research survey, conducted exclusively for Sputnik and released in May, revealed that 81 percent of those polled in Greece said they were interested in receiving information on world politics from sources other than Western media.
