  • [01] Acropolis Museum to present three Scythian objects from the Hermitage

    The Acropolis Museum will inaugurate on March 11 a precursor exhibition presenting exhibits from the Hermitage Museum as part of the cultural program titled "Year of Russia in Greece", the Culture ministry said on Wednesday.

    As part of the exchange program, the Acropolis museum will exhibit three golden objects from the Hermitage's collection of Scythian treasures, while the Russian museum will exhibit a marble statue of an Archaic Kore, lended by the Acropolis Museum.

    The opening ceremony will be attended by Culture and Sports Minister Aristidis Baltas and the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, Sergei Prikhodko.

    During the "2016 Greek-Russian initiative," which is dedicated to the promotion of Greece to the Russian public and of Russia to the Greek public, Athens and Moscow are planning a series of cultural events aiming "at renewing the traditional bonds of friendship and to enhance awareness and cooperation", the ministry statement said.

    During the event, Baltas and Prikhodko will also sign an agreement for the official exchange of specific programs during the Greek-Russia year.

    [02] Golden Dawn MEP ousted from EuroParliament session over comments about Turks

    STRASBOURG (ANA-MPA/ O. Tsipira) European Parliament President Martin Schulz on Wednesday ordered ushers to escort Greece's far-right Golden Dawn party MEP Eleftherios Synadinos from the plenary session for making disparaging remarks about the Turkish people. It was the first time in the European Parliament's history that such a decision was taken.

    Schulz intervened after Synadinos referred to Turks as "barbarians" and "dirty" and "being like dogs that bark and then retreat when the enemy approaches."

    Explaining his decision, Schulz cited article 165 of the EU, saying the MEP's statements were a "flagrant violation of human rights to which the EU adheres...an effort is being made here to cross red lines so that racism is accepted. I will not let this pass."
