The video was uploaded on Facebook by Greek Minister of Defense Nikos Panagiotopoulos, who noted in his post that ”Food distribution and electricity restoration operation [took place] on Kinaros, where the sole resident is ‘Kyra Rhinio,’ whose home always has the Greek flag raised.”
The Air Force personnel took advantage of the improved weather conditions to bring food and other supplies to the elderly woman who lives on the island all by herself.
It is noted that Kotsatourchi had been believed to be missing after all communications were lost with the islet of Kinaros due to the extremely bad weather prevailing on Monday and Thursday.
