It was initially said, on the whims of government sources to Kathimerini, that Putin would attend Greece’s celebrations commemorating the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821.

Invitations were sent to Prince Charles, heir apparent to the British throne, French President Emmanuel Macron and Putin, to attend the military parade on March 25 in Athens.
