Greek PM to Meet Russia's Putin in Moscow on April 8th

A Greek government official said on Tuesday that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will visit Moscow on April 8th, after being invited to talks by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Greece's government has previously said Putin had invited Tsipras to visit Moscow on May 9th and it was not immediately clear if that trip had been changed. It would be Tsipras's first official visit to Moscow since being elected in January. That prompted speculation that Greece might look to Moscow for financial aid to stave off bankruptcy--though Athens rejects the idea.
