There is another Greece

Τάσσος Παπαδόπουλος: Παρέλαβε κράτος και παρέδωσε κράτος

If you've only got access to TV from Greece, then the death and funeral of Tassos Papadopoulos – who lived his life, as his daughter said, with dignity and honour, like a Greek, who never bows his head – may have escaped your attention. Here are reports from Monday's RIK TV News on the funeral of Cyprus' former president, with, in the first video, valedictory speeches from Vassos Lyssarides and the aforementioned Anastassia Papadopoulou and, in the second clip, from Archbishop Chrysostomos, Marios Karoyian and Christodoulos Pashiardis. Tassos Papadopoulos took charge of a state and he handed over a state. Αιώνια θα ειναι η µνήµη του.
