Greek PM Alexis Tsipras in Moscow for talks

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has arrived in Moscow for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin at a critical time for Athens.

Mr Tsipras' government is embroiled in negotiations over its bailout and could run out of funds within weeks.

The two are expected to discuss ties between the EU and Russia, which were strained by the Ukraine crisis.
