Greek finance minister Yannis Stournaras has started to quote Russian communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin's insights in discussing matters of policy.
“Who does not want us to save ourselves? All the speculators in this world. All those who are shorting the euro and the bonds of eurozone countries,” Stournaras said.
“Also, we should not forget Lenin's talk of the ‘willing idiots’ [sic], because there are also those who do not want us to save ourselves,” he said in reference to the communist revolutionary.
