Kyriakos Mitsotakis attends Dormition ceremonies on Tinos

·

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis has taken part in religious observances marking the Dormition of the Virgin Mary on Tinos island on Tuesday.

Accompanying him were Defense Minister Nikos Dendias and Chief of the General Staff General Konstantinos Floros, according to Ekathimerini.

As a tribute to the crew of the cruiser “Elli,” which was sunk by an Italian submarine on August 15, 1940, just weeks before the outbreak of war between the two countries, the prime minister laid a wreath at sea in their memory.


Subsequently, Mitsotakis attended a celebratory divine liturgy at the island’s cathedral. The liturgy was presided over by Metropolitan Dorotheos of Syros and Tinos.

Acknowledging that this day holds associations with hope and optimism, Mitsotakis emphasized that Greeks have ample reason to view the future with increased optimism.

“Despite the challenges we have confronted, our nation has successfully navigated a decade-long crisis and possesses every justification to approach the future with heightened hope and optimism,” said Mitsotakis.
