Гръцки рибар сред номинираните за Нобелова награда за мир

Local fisherman Kostas Pinteris has a become a local hero in his hometown of Skala Kallonis on the Greek island of Lesbos, Wednesday, after the 45-year-old was nominated for the Nobel peace prize for saving refugees attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea.
Speaking about his nomination for the prestigious peace award, Kostas Pinteris responded "can you explain to me what is this story all about? On one side they give me the Nobel prize and on the other hand they continue to drop bombs," adding that "If I make money from this story, I will donate it to the hospital in all the small islands that we have near to us, to do something for all these people that need help."
According to official data, more than 13,000 refugees remain stranded in the islands of eastern Aegean with protests and clashes taking place almost daily in camps on the Greek islands.
Greece began deporting refugees back to Turkey from the islands of Lesbos and Chios in April, as part of the controversial EU-Turkey refugee agreement. Under the deal reached between the EU and Turkey on March 18, European countries will take in one Syrian refugee directly out of Turkey for every refugee returned from Greece. The EU also offered Turkey €6 billion ($6.7 billion), double the initial €3 billion ($3.3 billion) that was agreed to in November 2015.
