Description

Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Russian Federation, stated that, in effect, Alexander of Macedon (Alexander III, Alexander the Great) was Greek, in a comment following a question about economic crisis in Greece during "Russia 2012" forum, February 2012. In the excerpt from a debate at the forum, the synergy of otherwise blunt statement that "Alexander conquered Persia" followed by a sentence: "Now Greece is not to conquer anybody" is obvious - it is statement that Alexander's conquest was by Greeks, i.e. an endogenous conquest towards Persia of, simply stated, Greek design and character, led by Alexander.
