This Week: Revelations by Former Varoufakis Press Adviser Dimitris Yannopoulos

yannopoulosThis week on Dialogos Radio, the Dialogos Interview Series will feature part one of a two-part interview with Dimitris Yannopoulos, who previously served as the press adviser for the former finance minister of Greece, Yanis Varoufakis, during Varoufakis’ tenure as finance minister. In the first part of our interview with Yannopoulos, we will discuss his time working as the press adviser to the then finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, and will share with us some rather revealing details about the true agreements which Varoufakis made with Greece’s lenders in early 2015, during the first months of the then-newly elected SYRIZA-led government, agreements which contrary to the public image of Varoufakis as an anti-austerity renegade, actually tied Greece into further austerity.
