Military Parade
The military parade to mark Greek Independence Day on March 25 will take place without railings and there will not be an elevated platform for the officials, National Defense Minister Panos Kammenos said during a meeting with journalists.
The minister said the parade will include two National Guard battalions from the border region of Evros and the Dodecanese Islands, Greece. Flights of Armed Forces aircraft and helicopters are part of the staff training program and will not burden the budget.
Kammenos also announced he will be visiting the United States from March 27 to April 3, to represent the Greek government in the Independence Day celebrations organized by the Diaspora. He also said the ministry along with the Armed Forces will organize an event at Goudi Park for the unemployed and the homeless and urged citizens to volunteer.
The minister also announced a series of official visits abroad. Kammenos will join Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on a visit to Russia on May 9.
Deputy Defense Minister Nikos Toskas will also travel to Moscow ahead of Tsipras and Kammenos, on April 17-21. On March 18-20 Alternate Defense Minister Kostas Isichos and Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura will also travel to Moscow. Isichos will also participate in an international defense weapons exhibition in Brazil on April 14-17.
Kammenos also announced the prosecutor on issues of corruption, Eleni Raikou, sent the file prepared by the ministry on armaments procurement to Parliament, which will have to decide whether politicians were involved.
Ministry officials also discussed German reparations during their meeting which was also attended by Isichos, Toskas and the Vice President of the Committee for claiming German debts, Stefanos Limneos.
Kammenos is also scheduled to meet Parliament Speaker Zoi Konstantopoulou on Tuesday at the ministry, at 3 p.m. and he will then visit Larisa to attend hand-in ceremonies in two army units.
