Greece plans to buy Russian BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles, a source
Greece plans to buy Russian BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicles, a source close to the negotiations told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.

Greek media estimate the deal at over 1.2 billion euros ($1.76 billion). However, the Greek General Staff has refused to confirm the report.

The purchase would be one of the largest arms deals between Russia and a NATO member state. In the 1990s, Greece acquired over $1 billion worth of Russian weapons. Russian Air Defense system TOR-M1, Kornet and Fagot antitank weapons are in service with the Greek Armed Forces.

Greek Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis is set to visit Russia on December 17-19.
