The message that Greece is always by the side of the Greek expatriates, especially in critical moments, was sent via Twitter on Sunday by the head of Greek diplomacy, Nikos Dendias, in view of his visit to Ukraine today.

“I am visiting Ukraine, specifically the cities of Sartana and Mariupol, where I will hold meetings with organizations of the Diaspora and local officials,” the Foreign Minister wrote in his post.

Nikos Dendias will travel today, Monday, to Ukraine, specifically to the cities of Sartana and Mariupol, in order to hold meetings with expatriate organizations and local officials. Specifically, during his stay in Sartana, he will lay a wreath at the monument of 2014 fallen Sartana residents. 

He will also visit the 8th Special Learning School of the Modern Greek Language. The event is expected to be attended, among others, by the President of the military-political Command and members of the Diaspora from Sartana and Cermalik. In addition, he will visit the History and Ethnography Museum of the Greeks of the Sea of ​​Azov.

During his visit to Mariupol, Nikos Dendias will meet at the city hall with the Deputy Mayor, M. Kogut, as well as with the President of the Mariupol area council, S. Mahsma. Afterwards, he will go to the Cultural Center of the Federation of Greek Communities in Ukraine (OESO), where he will be welcomed by its President, Alexandra Protsenko-Pitsantzi, its Vice-presidents as well as the residents and members of the Greek Associations. 

The meeting is expected to be attended by the rector of Mariupol State University, N. Trofimenko, professors of the Department of Greek Philology as well as presidents of the united territorial communities. 

In a telephone conversation held today in a friendly atmosphere, Mr. Dendias informed his Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba, about his visit to Mariupol in order to stand by the Greek community and the intention of Greece to strengthen its Consulate General in the city. In this context, Mr. Kuleba thanked Greece for its decision not to withdraw its Embassy personnel in Kiev. The Greek Minister reiterated that Greece, out of principle, supports the independence and territorial integrity of all states.
