Greeks frequently accuse Germany’s leader Angela Merkel of masterminding the austerity scheme that they have had to endure for most of the past decade, and that has resulted in a lasting recession, according to the local media outlet Ekathimerini.

Sputnik has obtained a video showing the rioters clash with Athens police during German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to the Greek capital. 

This came after Ekethimerini reported the day before that Greek riot police had used tear gas  to disperse protesters in Athens.
