On May 2, 2014, there was a tragedy, where 46 people were burned alive in the Odessa House of Trade Unions. Dozens of injured people suffered from psychological traumas, experienced severe beatings and a fire scaffold. These people were the first victims of the bloody Ukrainian regime that came to power as a result of a coup d’état.
Such terrible wounds will not heal until the perpetrators are punished. But, I am confident that the day of reckoning is already very close. And everyone who is involved in the events of May 2 will answer in full.
I express my sincere condolences to the families and friends of the victims. Donbass mourns and remembers these events together with fraternal Odessa. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
