Plans to assassinate Konstantinos Karamanlis

A top secret document from EYP, Ethinki Ipiresia Pliroforion, i.e. the Greek National Intelligence Service, with the code name "Eidiko Deltio Enimerosis" (No 219/5 February 2009) has been published in the magazine Epikaira in Greece, informing Karamanli's Government that there was a plan (Pythia 1) to assassinate the Prime Minister, Kostas Karamanlis, leader of the New Democracy party. EYP was informed from FSB, the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, who found details of a plan to stop the new energy policy of Greece, which was oriented towards Moscow.
They refer to the singing of the Burgas-Alexandroupoli pipe line and the South Stream and the singing of the transnational convention on the TOMA BM-3HEL, which was decided on 6 months earlier. 
According to this article a small Russian team went to Greece in order to monitor the situation. Between the 20 and 25 April 2008 the Russians were embroiled with some unknown people who were tailing the former PM. The people got way, however the vehicle that they abandoned had maps with the routes Karamanlis took, information concerning his security men, weapons, night vision binoculars and explosives, including C4. 
The plan to destabilise the country, as claimed by the FSB, involved four points:

1. Political instability, which allegedly was achieved through the Vatopaidi (monastery of Mount Athos) scandal.
2. Economic and commercial instability which was achieved through the current economic crisis.
3. Social destabilisation via the social unrest and terrorism.
4. Problems concerning foreign policy. 

However EYP cannot control the validity of this information. Nevertheless if this is true then we have to try and find who these people were, or who they were working for. It is ironic to see that, although the assassination did not take place, Greece has been destabilised in all 4 points stated above.
