Prime Minister Tsipras visits areas damaged by the wildfires

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras visited the areas stroke by the deadly wildfires on Monday morning. Without having previously informed the media about the visit, the prime minister walked for an hour mainly in Mati and talked with locals, firefighters and  volunteers.

On his twitter account, Alexis Tsipras posted:

“I  visited the tragedy area. Spoke with locals, engineers, soldiers, firefighters and volunteers. Endless sadness but also endless respect to those who gave an uneven battle against the flames and now fight for the restoration.”

The Greek Prime Minister came under fire on weekend for not having visited the fire-hit areas so far.

But even after the visit, his ‘critics’ lashed out at Tsipras in the comments section of his tweet. They criticized him for “having been there” for “not informing the media” except state ERT TV, for ‘staging a PR show.”
