Lambros Tzoumis, lieutenant general e.a. on the issue of increasing violations, he emphasized to MEGA that "any violation of national and sovereign rights or national sovereignty must be addressed. He must not be left unscathed."

And he continued about the overflights: "If this thing continues, because the crisis is coming, we will find it in front of us" and emphasized that "Erdogan will challenge us to make the first move".

The internationalist Alexandros Despotopoulos, for his part, evaluating the Prague Synod said: "The Turkish side has found itself in the need to respond to the internationalization of Greek-Turkish that the Greek side achieved."

The international expert on the case of a "hot" episode estimated that "Turkey does not want a total confrontation with Greece, because it knows that it will have an uncertain end. Erdoğan is trying to create tension with overflights, he is using immigrants as a tool, he may even take out a research vessel, because he wants to lead us to a dialogue on all matters."

Regarding the operational level, Nikolas Chrysochoos, representative of the Dodecanese Reserve Officers in Karpathos, commented on how the national guards of Karpathos see Erdogan's threats: "We are calm, we are not worried. We remain as national guard and reserve officers on standby. From the moment the signal is given in ten minutes we are ready and we are on the front line".

Regarding the recent mobility, the representative of the Dodecanese Reserve Officers commented that they are familiar with the situation and are always ready.
