Greece’s Parliament president, Costas Tassoulas, on Monday opened a plenary session of the legislature with an honorary reference to the 200th anniversary of the crossing of the River Prut in Wallachia, modern-day northeast Romania, by Greek revolutionary leader  Alexandros Ypsilantis and his band of volunteers.
