A video is going viral on social media showing soldiers singing the Greek National Anthem as they approach Kastellorizo.
Kastellorizo is at the center of Turkey’s illegal claims on Greek sovereignty.
The video which was posted on Facebook by Fotis Manousis, shows the soldiers proudly singing the Greek National Anthem on the deck of the ship that was transporting them to Kastellorizo. They were on their way to the remote island to replace the previous guard.
“When we all face the pandemic from the security of our home and whine about everything that happens, there are these men, who with so much enthusiasm go to guard the borders of our homeland! I feel proud of all these Greek children and of the parents who raised them,” Manousis posted with the video.
