Russia's embargo in response to EU sanctions hits fruit growers in northern Greece
The dispute between Europe and Russia over the Ukraine crisis is another problem for Greece. The fruit growing region in the north has been especially hard hit.
European politicians have increased calls for sanctions against the ex-chancellor for representing Russian interests. Ukraine's foreign minister said sanctions must target "those who are pushing Putin's projects abroad."
Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder is unlikely to be punished for his Russian dealings, as Ukraine would like. But he's still coming under fire across the political spectrum in Germany.
Chancellor Angela Merkel wants a renewed push for peace in Ukraine as conflicting sides fail to live up to the Minsk agreements. The optimistic tone comes as the EU renewed sanctions on Russia over Ukraine.
