and it's now getting to to crunch point and the deal that was reached last thursday was was a nothing deal really because it doesn't address the fundamental issues that there is too much. debt in the u. and it's unsustainable in my view the best the best option for the greeks is to default of course that there is much bigger financial consequences for the for the rest of europe and for the rest of the world if that happens but if we're talking about what is in the best interest of the greek people then then then that's probably the best outcome effectively a greek defaults then you have to look at who actually owns the debt and that's principally. by other sovereigns by the e.u. and by by the banks and pension funds and the consequences of that is that it would make the financial system the banking system much less stable and the worry is of the snowball effect and how they would face the banks and then other european

sovereigns and whether that would then lead to further defaults in a number of sovereign defaults the same time on our website r.t. dot com we're asking what you think was behind the greek prime minister a surprise decision to hold a referendum on the belo deal here's how things fall right now almost forty percent think agree here is made of why you stepped a lot of popular. there say about a third think the movie is just populism aimed at quelling protests the rest split about evenly between whether the decision is a knife in the news back or a pop at grave risk looking for a pathway to an automobile retirement. with greece already neck deep in economic and political turmoil it seems yet another crisis could be around the corner going up we report from athens where an anti immigration sentiment is reaching a boiling point adding to be existing mood of austerity anger and desperation plus . the russian markets open slightly high with investors still keeping their distance from greece guess it's more in business in ten minutes. but first the u.n.
