The following timeline provides a non-exhaustive compilation of main reports of push backs and other violations of human rights at the Greek-Turkish sea borders since March 2020, following Greece’s decision to impose a one-month suspension of its asylum procedure in response to declarations by Turkey that it would not prevent refugees from crossing its western borders. On 2 March, the Hellenic Armed Forces began live-fire military exercises along the Aegean, from Samothrace to Kastellorizo.

Timeline dates refer to the date of publication of reports, separately indicating the date of alleged incidents, where available.

This timeline solely purports to reproduce material made publicly available by media and civil society organisations and does not amount to an assessment by RSA  or PRO ASYL of the allegations contained therein.
