Diana Johnstone;

The United States has been relatively discrete during this crisis, but 
Washington’s will is known.  Greece must stay tightly within the 
European Union, for geopolitical reasons.  Just look where Greece is, 
and what it is: an Orthodox Christian country with traditional good 
relations with Russia, located on the Mediterranean not so far from 
“Putin’s Russia”.  Greece must not be allowed to drift away. Period.

Putin says Greece hasn't asked for any help.

President Putin said Russia could lend money to Greece for joint large 
projects but Greece hasn't asked for any help.

Putin was more interested in privatization. He said that if Greece sells 
assets then Russia is ready to take part. Sounds like some oligarchs 
would love to get their hands on some underpriced assets.

Tsipras said he is not going around asking countries to solve a European 
problem that needs a European solution.
