Andreas Friganas, Ambassador of Greece in the Russian Federation was recalled to Athens. TASS claims this with a reference to the Greek diplomatic source. 

‘Mr. Friganas is being recalled to Greece. He completes his mission in Moscow and will be replaced by new,’ reads the message.  

According to mass media, Friganas was appointed Greece’s Ambassador to Moscow in May. 

Earlier, on July 11, the outlet in Athens reported that the Government of Greece decided to send off two Russian diplomats and to ban the entrance for another two officials due to the threat of the National Security. Russians are blamed with attempts to meddle with Greece's internal affairs and the illegal activity, which undermines the basics of the national security. 

On August 6, Andreas Friganas, Greece Ambassador in Russia was called to the MFA of the Russian Federation to be informed about retaliatory measures in response to the expelling of the Russian diplomats by Athens.
