If Putin does help them , it is what it is , the EU is definitely not looking out for their best interest , and would have the Greek people little better than serfs . If you look at it one way , Putin has no more strings attached than any offer the US makes . From a long term economic standpoint , the pipeline deal they made with Russia , and other help they can get until they can get back on their feet , is a reasonable direction . Especially if the EU starts to fold like a house of cards , then Russia may actually be the more stable of the two , at least in the shorter term . When they get back on their feet , they will have more options . Spain and/or Italy could put the EU in a severe crisis . Just Sayin.
