The Greek government has decided to cancel the contract with Russia for the servicing of the Tor-M1 and Osa-AKM anti-aircraft missile systems that are in service with the country's army.

According to Pronews.gr, citing a "top-secret document" that leaked through the parliament, Athens will no longer procure spare parts and components for the Tor-M1 and Osa-AKM missile systems.

As a result, these mentioned systems could soon be removed from service, as the available spare parts will only last for a few months due to their limited quantity and the government's refusal to fulfill the existing contract.

In total, the Greek army and air force possess 21 self-propelled Tor-M1 SAMs and 38 self-propelled Osa-AKM systems with a maximum firing range of 10-12 km.

The contract for the continued support of these systems in the coming years amounts to over 102 million euros. The material asserts that these SAMs will likely be transferred to Ukraine through third countries, and the decision taken is purely political.
