Cyprus has been an espionage hub since at least the Cold War, and probably longer. At one time, you could see CIA and KGB having a nice dinner and trading state secrets to one another over dinner, each hoping to give up just enough bait to catch a bigger fish from the other side, then get up in the morning and take the same flight to Budapest, Odessa, Berlin or Vienna.

She's had a long association with both sides, but being closer to Russia physically, it's no wonder, really, that is the direction she would turn in now.

If I were the Russians, I would GIVE Cyprus the 5 billion in exchange for being allowed to setup a comibination Naval Base / Airfield on the island.

Cyprus is in a hugely strategic area, both for coverage of the Mediterranean area and the Middle East, as well as close to North Africa and Southern Europe.

Would be a wet dream for Vlad Putin.

"Russia and Cyprus have historical ties. It is the reason the US told Turkey to invade Cyprus in the first place. Russia was considering stationing nukes on Cyprus during the Cold War, the same way they did in Cuba and Europe/West wouldnt allow it. "


What a load of rubbish, Cyprus was owned by her majesty Queen Elizabeth II at that point, it was British overseas territory, protected by Her majesty's mighty British forces. (part of it still is)

Why would Russia and more importantly, how could Russia place nukes on a UK military controlled island?

As a prisoner you should know more about the might of the British Empire, more so than others!

Why wouldn't they harbor both sides? It puts them in the perfect position to play both side off each other.

Before you people start discussing and making speculations about Russia giving a 5 billion loan to Cyprus...

First you should go and read and learn some history from war events (so you know what you are talking about)

Second, read some news about the current economic situation in Cyprus! Not from third parties but from actual Cypriot News (yes they are translated and in English)

So people before you go on and talk as if you know things... please first do your research!! Then you can discuss with facts!
