Interesting photos. But I was surprised that there is a warship in the civilian port. How so?!

If you mean the #russian one in Corfu:
Quote
The Russian Ministry of Defence has announced that the vessel is in Corfu in honour of the "liberation of the islands by Admiral Ushakov", who, in March 1799, took advantage of the Ionian Islands residents' displeasure with the French and took over the islands. The Russian presence led to the establishment in 1800 of the first modern Greek State following the end of the Byzantine Era - the United States of the Ionian Islands.
