Yesterday, 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. 

Reportedly, the Greece government sent off two Russian diplomats and banned the entrance for another two officials due to the threat of the National Security.
