WordPress 5.3 get_the_time() weird output

I've just upgraded to WP 5.3 from the last 5.2 version.

The locale is set to Greek and all my tests are in that language.

The output of

echo get_the_time( 'l, d F Y H:i', $post->ID );


Σάββατο, 19 20 Ιανουαρίου19 10:50
Saturday, 19 20 January19 10:50 in english.

where obviously should be:

Σάββατο, 19 Ιανουαρίου 2019 10:50
Saturday, 19 January 2019 10:50 in english.

It seems that it gets the first two digits of the year part and places it before the month.

I think this has something to do with the new dates in 5.3 and locale which by the way now recognises genitive cases correctly.

Best regards
