The euro-zone collapse is inevitable, financial expert Viktor Suslov told a press conference "Is Greece leaving the euro-zone? Consequences for Europe and the world", ForUm correspondent reports.

In particular, Suslov noted the need for understanding the reasons for the Greek debt crisis. "It was the mistake to introduce single currency in sovereign states, the establishment of the euro-zone was a mistake," he said.
