Russia Says No, and Then No, and Then No Again

Cypriot Finance Minister Michalis Sarris Leaves Moscow

With the following statement Russian Finance Minister Anton Silouanov officially stated to reporters that Russia will not offer aid to Cyprus:  “Talks between Russia and Cyprus for a possible package of financial assistance have been completed without success.” He went on to clarify “Russians investors were not interested in the marine reserves of natural gas.” And just to be super clear "Talks ended on the Russian side."  

Cypriot Finance Minister Michalis Sarris has returned to Cyprus with empty hands, as two days of critical talks in Moscow failed to yield.
