As a member of NATO during the bombing in 1999, #Greece was forced to send its warship “Temistoklis” to the Adriatic sea. However, the crew was disappointed by this decision of their government, which is why the captain Marinos Ritsoudis refused to bomb Yugoslavia and returned the ship back to its port.
“As an Orthodox Christian I can not participate in an attack on a brotherly nation,” said Marinos Ritsoudis on that occasion.
For this act, Greek military court sentenced him to two and a half years in prison, but at the same time he earned eternal recognition and gratitude of the Serbian people.
