Deputy Defense Minister Dimitris Vitsas has dismissed as “nonsense,” the claim that Vladimir Putin was asked by Greek officials in 2015 if Athens could print drachmas in Russia.

Speaking to Real FM radio on Friday, he said that it was a non issue as “Syriza never discussed the printing of money.”

In “A President Shouldn’t Say That,” based on a series of interviews with Hollande by two journalists from daily Le Monde, the French president is quoted as saying he received a call from Putin, who allegedly told him that “Greece asked us to print drachmas in Russia because they no longer have a printing machine to do so.”
