He originally planned to travel to Moscow in May but he accelerated the meeting with Putin a couple of weeks ago as Greece came to loggerheads with Germany and other European countries over the terms for releasing the money. Without it, Greece could go bankrupt or possibly exit the euro zone.


"This is an attempt to ratchet up the pressure on the rest of the euro zone to make concessions to Greece," said Simon Tilford, deputy director of the Centre for European Reform in London. If so, he added, it is a gamble that could backfire.
