Greece has decided to terminate the contract with Russia for technical support and maintenance of the Tor-M1 and Osa-AKM air defense systems. This "top secret" document was accidentally published in the country's parliament, which caused a wide resonance. This is reported by

According to the publication, the available spare parts will only last a few months of active operation of the systems. This step of the Greek authorities has caused concern among experts, since significant financial resources spent on these systems are estimated at around a billion euros. Such a decision can lead to additional costs and problems in the country's defense sector.
