A total of 73 illegal migrants in 2 inflatable motorboats were spotted and brought in early Tuesday morning by the Coast Guard in two separate operations in Lesvos and Samos.

Following a video of illegal migrants walking unhindered through scorched areas of the former Dadia National Park, a new one has surfaced showing illegal migrants boarding a van to be taken further inland. The police are clearly ordered not to touch anyone … However, there are nuances.

A patrol boat of the Greek Coast Guard, which was on patrol, noticed in the early morning in the sea area of ​​u200bu200bAgrielia, in the area of ​​​​about. Lesbos, a wind-blown inflatable boat with a large number of passengers on board.

The coast guards kindly offered their services and, having loaded the passengers of the boat on board the boat, they took them to the port of Mytilini. After that, the aforementioned foreigners were sent to the reception center for refugees and migrants “Μαυροβούνι”. The boat they were on board sank.

At the same time, another Coast Guard patrol boat noticed in the sea area north of about. Samos, near the island of Prasonisi, a boat with 25 passengers, which also drifted with the engine off.

The patrol boat removed from her board 17 men, 4 women and 4 children, who were taken to the port of Malagari. They were then handed over to the police department and transported to a closed controlled facility on the island of Samos. They are all in good health, and the boat they were in was destroyed.

For the second month, the borders of Greece are actually open for the passage of illegal migrants, who rush into the country in thousands, freely crossing both the land and sea borders with Turkey.

Following a video of illegal migrants walking unhindered through scorched areas of the former Dadia National Park, a new one has surfaced showing illegal migrants boarding a van to be taken further inland. The police are clearly ordered not to touch anyone … However, there are nuances.

If they had moved on foot or by public transport, they would not have been disturbed. Entry into the country is free, but their transportation within the country in a private car or commercial vehicle is already illegal, and carriers can receive a life sentence for this. Therefore, they act in their own way.

Apparently this has something to do with the fact that the Greek government is working on a bill to recognize same-sex marriages. If it is passed by Parliament, then will allow same-sex couples in Greece to enter into a civil marriage and adopt a child. Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis addressed the issue in an interview with Bloomberg, stressing that “Greek society is much more ready and mature.”

Given the fact that children are usually not born from same-sex marriages, and the population of Greece is rapidly declining, apparently, the decision was made to open the borders…
