Greek Defense Minister urged to raise funds for the construction of ships

25
The Ministry of Defense of Greece appealed to the wealthy citizens of their country to invest in the construction of new ships for the Greek Navy. The corresponding statement was made by the head of the country's defense department, Panos Kammenos, reports bmpd blog referring to the American edition Defense News.


Greek Defense Minister urged to raise funds for the construction of ships


The Minister of Defense appealed to the citizens of Greece to finance the construction of ships for the Greek fleet. He said that the Greek Navy needed charity from citizens and called on large shipowners, as well as other wealthy citizens, to help the state by transferring funds to a special account that will be open from January 1, 2019. The funds will go to purchase frigates and the flagship.

Kammenos, in his speech, “pressed” on the feeling of patriotism of the Greeks, mentioning Georgis Averoff, who in 1910 had invested heavily in the construction of a warship, later named after him. Also, the Greek Minister of Defense himself promised to invest in the construction of ships.

Meanwhile, the statement of Kammenos, which caused a significant discussion in the foreign media, almost did not receive support in Greece. According to political analysts, this is a “typical high-profile statement” aimed at supporting the electorate of the right-wing Kammenos party, which risks not to go to parliament.

          Probably there is)))) If you buy "Galleys and Trimes" in the United States, then the welfare of individual oligarchs and hoplite commanders may increase.

      Read carefully - "large ship owners, as well as other wealthy citizens." And it would be nice to fork out our bored nouveau riches for a good cause! good

        Yeah. And male children of all officials and deputies of all ranks should be called up for military service. Although, everyone in the sanatorium on Lake Khatanga is enough.

    Greece has everything, incl. and corruption is probably one of the highest among the NATO countries and they are good at "breeding", both Putin and the EU at the same time. Handsome men!

    "Defense Minister appealed to the citizens of Greece with a call to finance the construction of ships for the Greek fleet.

    And it’s not even funny at all ... A normal move ... The main thing is to be sure that all funds will be spent strictly for their intended purpose....

    PS You can recall almost the many forgotten old Soviet ... They collected money, bought (voluntarily-compulsory and voluntarily) bonds (the state took a loan from its own population) not only for the army, but also for the construction of new plants ...
    Another question is that many of these bonds were repaid (I'm afraid to make a mistake) somewhere in the mid-80s ...

    I repeat once again: it is not funny at all ... If our-not-ours, who are on the Forbes list (and not only), are well voluntarily and forcibly shaken, then a very large sum may turn out ... I myself would "slobber" part of my pension IF YOU WERE SURE that these funds would NOT be stolen ... hi

      Greece (and this particular type) is not the first to turn to the people for money in the fleet. And not the USSR! Estonia in the 30s, partly due to trophies (2 of our destroyers), partly by subscription among the population created its fleet.

    When the news began to talk about donations to the temple in Patriot Park, I had a similar thought - about raising funds for updating the fleet. But you need to control where you spend it.

        Will not be enough. But if he invests these hours in the completion of Polyment-Redoubt, and will monitor the effectiveness of spending money personally with a daily report on the work of his wards to the Supreme ... repeat

    I read the Greek village of New Laspa in D N R on the line of fire, 7 people live, they didn’t bring bread from the age of 14, they brought humanitarian aid and there was no bread. In general, something is wrong with the grain, although the republic is self-sufficient in grain, but the business can also sell seed . and leave the feed for baking bread and this is not the same product.

    But what about the help of the dear NATO. They "for free" will help those that they do not need as masters of the Balts, ukravikings and other ................. freedom-loving people of the sea.

    The Greeks survived. How to fill pockets so they are just the same heroes, steeper than the Spartans, but how to build ships, then they immediately have no money.
