If you use a slightly different preamble, you can use Greek natively.

\documentclass[10 pt]{article}
\usepackage[LGR,T2A,T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{substitutefont}
\usepackage[greek,russian,english]{babel} %default is English
\languageattribute{greek}{polutoniko} %for accents
\substitutefont{LGR}{\rmdefault}{porson}
\thispagestyle{empty}

\begin{document}
English:

Greek: \foreignlanguage{greek}{νηπιαας καραβι σαγανακι καιαδας}
\end{document}
