The Russian Cabinet of Ministers’ press service reported that Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and his Greek counterpart Kyriakos Mitsotakis spoke by phone on Monday about the battle against wildfires, trade and economic cooperation, and COVID-19.

Trade and economic collaboration between Russia and Greece as well as the coronavirus were among the topics discussed by the prime ministers. In Russia and Greece, the statement says, special emphasis was devoted to the fight against natural fires. Mitsotakis, according to the press office, thanked Russia for its assistance in putting out flames that erupted in Greece.

Mishustin and Mitsotakis also discussed forthcoming government interactions.

It was May 2021 when the Russian prime minister spoke on the phone with his Greek colleague. When Mishustin visited Greece in March to commemorate the country’s Independence Day, the leaders met in Athens.
