ATHENS — President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou, in a letter to Kalavryta Mayor Athanasios Papadopoulos, expressed her sorrow that she will be unable to attend the Kalavryta Massacre memorial service on Sunday, due to the restrictions in place to contain the spread of Covid-19.

She also underlined that the righteous fight for reparations remain active in the memory of those so unjustly killed and that she greatly looks forward to visiting Kalavryta as soon as the conditions permit.
