Immediately after the military parade and events in Athens to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Greek Revolution of 1821, the Russian Prime Minister, Mikhail Mishustin, headed to Mount Athos.
According to pronews.gr, the Russian prime minister arrived in Thessaloniki yesterday afternoon and left immediately for Mount Athos, where, according to information, he will visit St. Panteleimon Monastery, where he will stay for two nights. He will also be visiting Philotheou Monastery, where maintenance work is carried out, which, according to information, is financed by him and his brother.
This is the second time Mikhail Mishustin visited Mount Athos. In September 2020, he had visited St. Panteleimon Monastery and Philotheou Monastery, while he also donated medical equipment, significantly helping the work of the priests.
Tomorrow Saturday, Mikhail Mishustin will travel by speedboat to Thassos to visit the metochion of Philotheou Monastery, the women’s monastery of the Archangel Michael, located outside the village of Theologos.
The Coast Guard had increased its forces for precautionary reasons, while men of the Hellenic Police will remain there during the Russian prime minister’s visit to the Athos Peninsula.
