The Greek public supported Russia and distanced itself from the government


Many EU citizens do not support the tough sanctions imposed on Russia, not because they caused a crisis and inflated prices for all types of consumer products, but because they fully understand the injustice of the current geopolitical situation. Actions in support of Russia's actions in Ukraine are taking place in many cities and EU countries, which at the official level have clearly expressed their Russophobia and dislike for Moscow's attempts to ensure its security and guarantee the future.


If you add up political и economic demonstrators in Europe, then it turns out to be a rather significant part of society, contrary to the official line of the government. However, the citizens of Greece, members of the public movement "Network of Hellenism", decided to show support for Russia's position most clearly. They collected many signatures on a petition in defense of Russia and handed it, as well as flowers, to the Russian embassy. The document contains an apology from ordinary people who are ashamed of the behavior of their authorities, who unilaterally support Ukraine.

On behalf of all Greeks, we apologize for the most outrageous and offensive behavior of our leadership in history. By expelling diplomats and supporting sanctions, they insult their people as the bearers of democracy, Orthodox Christians. We are with you, the fraternal Russian people, with all our hearts.

the petition says.

This significant event once again confirms the deep stratification in the European, as well as the world community: the real social distance lies not between covid carriers and healthy people, as they said quite recently, but between the puppet pro-American elite of Western countries and their own people. This is evidenced by the actions carried out abroad in support of the Russian Federation, which are arranged not only by immigrants from the USSR or Russian emigrants, but also by local residents.

As for Greece, things take an even sadder turn: Athens simply has no other choice but to be in the active vanguard of the anti-Russian rhetoric of the Western coalition. The permanent economic crisis and complete dependence on loans from the IMF and other international credit organizations do not leave a single chance for an independent policy and the right to have an independent government. Therefore, in general, the position of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is quite understandable, although unacceptable.

In this regard, the Greek people are more sovereign, making their own decisions. A vivid example of such an initiative is the non-recognition by the Greek public of the Greeks who belong to the nation and are fighting on the side of the Ukrainian Nazis. In fact, these militants were rejected by the nation, deprived of their ethnic connection and ostracized. Yes, this has little effect on legal terms, but the Greek people showed their good, high nature very clearly. The petition submitted to the Russian Embassy, ​​demonstrating distancing from the government, is another confirmation of this.

    As soon as the progressive Greek public gets into the government, they will do and say exactly the same as the current one. It's one thing to talk on the bench, it's another thing when you are responsible, and the country is hanging on a debt bag. Move aside and disaster, funding will be cut and the new government will be thrown off the cliff into the sea by the progressive public for cutting rations.

    The Lord God puts the Greeks before a choice - either support for Orthodox Russia or indulgence of Uniate (Catholicized) Ukraine. Or the faith of Christ - or Mammon.

        And who said that they were Orthodox ?, maybe they didn’t even have crosses on their chests ... if the country is Orthodox, this does not mean that all without exception are representatives of this denomination ...

          Is there any evidence that Sahaidachny was a Catholic? laughing

          Livny was a second-rate fortress of the Zasechnaya line. The walls of the fortress were made of wood and earth. The Livny people put up fierce resistance, but the forces turned out to be too unequal: according to the painting of 1618, there were only 940 people in the Livny garrison. "Livensky ruin" is reflected in the annals. Here is how the battle near Livny is depicted in the Belsk Chronicle[13]:

          And he, pan Saadachnoy, came from Cherkassy near the Ukrainian city near Livny, and took Livny by storm, and shed a lot of Christian blood, innocently flogged many Orthodox peasants and their wives and children, and he committed desecration of many Orthodox Christians and desecrated and ruined the churches of God and he plundered all the Christian houses and took many wives and children into captivity.

    Well, it won't be long to endure these sanctions and the anti-Russian policy of the West! The count goes on for months and Russia is still winning this geopolitical war regarding the ultimate goal! And after the collapse of the EU, Greece can also be accepted into Russia! But I will not rush ahead of the locomotive, soon you will see everything for yourself! :) The fall of the oligarchy, the collapse of Europe, the division of Ukraine and "many, many interesting things"! :) Stock up on popcorn and watch! :)

        There was another prediction: Russia will start a war with a neighboring state, which all neighboring countries will supply with weapons, and then these countries themselves will get involved. Everything will end with World War III.
