Press of Greece: Mikhail Mishustin is expected to arrive at the celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of the country's liberation from the Turkish yoke

27

The Greek press reports that a delegation from the Russian Federation has been invited to the celebrations in honor of the 200th anniversary of the liberation from the Ottoman (Turkish) yoke. The celebrations will take place on March 25th. On this day, Greece celebrates its Independence Day. In the restoration of Greek independence in the XNUMXth century, the Russian state played, to put it mildly, an important role.


The Pentapostagma edition writes that initially it was not clear who exactly would represent Russia at the ceremony dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the liberation from Ottoman rule. The press refers to Dmitry Peskov's statement that Vladimir Putin "did not plan to visit Greece." Now, according to the publications of Greek resources, a delegation headed by the head of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin will arrive in Athens. This is the kind of delegation the Greeks are expecting, based on the messages.

On March 25, a military parade is planned in Athens in honor of the jubilee Independence Day of the country.

The Greek newspaper Te Nea writes that invitations were also sent to the leaders of the EU states, including Emmanuel Macron, Angela Merkel and others.

From the message of the Greek press:

The head of the Republic of Cyprus is expected to arrive at the celebrations. At the same time, it is not yet clear who exactly will lead the American delegation.

At the same time, it is noted that the celebrations will be held in a "cut" mode in connection with the pandemic.

The Russian government has not yet commented on the publication of the Greek press about the upcoming visit of the chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers to Athens.

Recall that Greece was under the military-feudal regime of the Ottomans since the 1770th century. At the same time, the first accented attempt to overthrow the Ottoman regime was made only in XNUMX during one of the Russian-Turkish wars.

    The Greeks never crap on us, on purpose or out of thoughtlessness, but also nominal friends. A visit is good, anyway.

    The Russian government has not yet commented on the publication of the Greek press about the upcoming visit of the chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers to Athens.
    More interesting is the reaction of Turkish SMIs and officials.

      They were never our friends ... they voted for sanctions against Russia ... what kind of friends are they to us after that.
      The Greeks from Russia only need investments and its natural resources ... after that all their friendship goes into a big bunch.
      When it is necessary to stand up for Russia in principle, they unanimously voted for the sanctions ... well, how can they be considered friends after that.

          A strange historical kaleidoscope is happening in the world today. Namely.

          While Greece expects the arrival of the Russian delegation to the celebrations marking the 200th anniversary of the country's liberation from the TURKISH IGA led by Mishustin, Armenia Pashinyan intends to participate in April in the openly anti-Russian NATO exercises "Defender Europe 2021", in which Turkey will also take part.
          And although Pashinyan is still partisan on this matter - he does not confirm or deny it (!) - however, military experts from different countries are already on their ears from Pashinyan's Armenian "kotovasia".

        I fully support and we must not forget that lately, from Greece, from journalists to politicians and generals, there have been statements inciting relations between Russia and Turkey. Greece needs relations with Russia precisely in order to resist Turkey.

        In Greece, there were strong communists who led the partisan movement against the Nazis. But according to the Yalta agreements, the country entered the sphere of influence of Great Britain, which "brought order", sometimes using Nazi methods, And there could be a second Serbia ...

        We have more problems with our neighbors here with the Greeks, we should not confuse the attitude of the people with the government! Were many of our delegations invited to the liberation of RIGI?

        And then what?
        To fight for the interests of the Greeks against the Turks or something after that?
        All this, of course, is beautiful and solemn ... but what will these Greeks do if NATO is trampled on by a war against Russia?

          Yes, everything is simple ... The Greeks will have nothing else to do but imitate war, fighting from under the stick.
          Or do you still think that NATO is a kind of monolith?

          In fact, the mass of the alliance member states, in the event of a "mess", will be the dog's fifth leg in NATO ...

            Of course not ... but the territory of Greece will be used to the full in the war for logistics, for the deployment of various military bases, jump airfields and many other things against us ... it is unlikely that the Greeks will oppose this.

      Whoever comes from Russia to the Greeks, they will ask for money. The main thing is not to give. No eureka. Then we will have good relations and save money.

    Now they would have to "fight off" about the American yoke, becoming a truly sovereign and independent state, and not a military overseas colony of the USA.

      Greece is a NATO member. So is Turkey. Yes, they have an open conflict over the disputed border territories and ideologically, but why should we go there so frankly, supporting the phantom irritation of one such member against another member, even NATO. Why should we, because of someone else's holiday, embitter another "inferior", but partner ...

        but why should we go there so openly, supporting the phantom irritations of one such member against another member,

        It is necessary to climb where there are interests that need to be protected. On the day of independence of Greece, the presence must be designated, since today it cannot be designated, but after a number of years, attempts will begin to rewrite history. The Russian Empire fought in regiments in the Balkans, and there were only 16 Americans, but they would dodge and claim that they had saved everyone.

      Cyprus is officially another state. And if we talk about the yoke, then it is necessary to throw off the brites in Cyprus first of all.

    By the way, a Russian naval base was set up on the islands of the archipelago. We ought to return it.
