Dendias Holds Teleconference with Greek Diplomats in Ukraine

February 27, 2022

ATHENS – Greek Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Dendias held a videoconference with the ambassador and consuls general in Ukraine earlier on Sunday to learn of developments and how to best help Greeks and expatriates in the war-torn country.

Dendias spoke with Ambassador Frangiskos Kostelenos, dispatched to the Consulate General of Mariupol (Marioupoli), and Consuls General Manolis Androulakis there and Dimitris Dochtsis at Odessa, a ministry statement revealed. Also attending was Ambassador to Bucharest Sophia Grammata, who has assumed the coordination of citizens arriving to Moldova and Romania from Ukraine.

Consul Androulakis informed the minister that the mayor of Sartana village, where some of the expatriates were killed, has requested that residents evacuate to Mariupol, nearly ten kilometers away.

FM Dendias expressed his appreciation for their work and said he would remain in frequent contact, given the highest priority Greece has given to protecting Greek nationals and expatriates.

According to the latest reports, ten members of the Greek community died at bombardments of villages since the Russian invasion.


ATHENS - The search-and-rescue operation to locate a missing F-4E Phantom II fighter jet pilot, Captain Efstathios Tsitlakidis, aged 31, was ended on Wednesday after an analysis of the collected evidence from the crash confirmed his death, a Hellenic Air Force announcement said.
