Celebrations dedicated to the 186 anniversary of the Battle of Navarino took place in the Greek port of Pylos


The festivities began with the removal of the national flags of Greece, Great Britain, Russia and France from the mayor’s office of Pylos and their rise to the Square of the Three Admirals.

Solemn prayer in the church of the Most Holy Theotokos was held by the Metropolitan of Messinia Chrysostom, after which the Black Sea sailors took part in the ceremony of laying wreaths at the monument to the Three Admirals who commanded allied squadrons during the Battle of Navarino.

A company of the Guard of Honor from a separate brigade of marines and the orchestra of the Black Sea Fleet took part in the parade that was held after this parade.

Then the Russian delegation and guests of the holiday crossed the boat to the island of Sfaktiriya, which became the resting place of Russian sailors who died for the independence of Greece.

Yevgeny Yurkov, Counselor-Envoy of the Russian Embassy in Greece, Colonel Gennady Mozhayev, Military Attache at the Russian Embassy in Greece, commander of the march, captain 1, rank Andrei Paliy, representatives of the Pylos City Hall and the Greek Navy laid wreaths at the burial site of Russian sailors who died at Navarin.

      Russia is generally a different universe, its own rules, its own laws. In Russia, you need a tough hand, to the wall of all ....

          Not Stalin but Trotsky. Stalin was getting rid of the revolutionaries, not of "everyone." And our liberals still have such a grip! stronger than all fascist, national socialist and communist regimes combined!

        Well, if everyone is against the wall, it will turn out almost every sixth, and who will work in the field of kickbacks and requisitions? Not the 37th year. But seriously, why study if we had the same thing, we just need to remember

    The future naval commanders of Russia participated in this battle:
    Lieutenant Pavel Stepanovich Nakhimov
    midshipman Vladimir Alekseevich Kornilov
    Midshipman Vladimir Ivanovich Istomin

    and, just after 27 years, the former allies (England, France) and opponents (Turkey) will trample to Sevastopol. So, history reminds us - there are no eternal allies!

      And in just a couple of years, the same Russian troops will go to defend Constantinople from Egyptian rebels and save the Turks. You're right

    The reason is certainly good - the anniversary of the Battle of Navarino. Only with the Black Sea Fleet already no one to send? On the killer a civilian crew, an auxiliary ship ... Somehow the wrong ...

        All BDKs go along the Novorossiysk-Tartus route. Last year, EMNIP BDK Azov went to Greece.

    just an auxiliary ship ... in honor of the Navarino battle. was it really difficult to send one of the warships that serve in the region. there are several warships relatively relatively close to the Syrian coast.
