I wonder about the reliability of this report; if it is valid it must
be an exclusive revelation.

The link for this report's claim to a "senior Greek official" source
is actually a report (in the Telegraph) that says:
"Russia denies striking gas deal to net Greece €5bn:
Kremlin says it has not reached an agreement to provide a €5bn
sweetner to Athens for a planned gas pipeline that runs through the
country"

This report refers to general statements by Alexis Tsipras and
Panagiotis Lafazanis of openness to closer cooperation with Russia but
not to a definite deal.  If this was a reliable report i think the
news would be spreading to other sources but i don't see any.

Also the 'ZeroHedge' story itself acknowledges that " €5 billion will
do little to change the mechanics of Greek debt sustainability."
