Belgium: Odessa massacre remembered outside European Parliament

 

 

 

 RIANOVOSTI –  4 October 2014

Scores of people in Brussels assembled to honor the memory of the victims of the May 2 Odessa tragedy. The participants were carrying black balloons.

Similar events took place in a number of European cities.

On May 2, 2014 a rally held by Antimaidan activists on Kulikovo Field in Odessa turned tragic when they were attacked by Right Sector radicals and football fans. Dozens of Antimaidan activists were killed when the Trade Union building they were taking shelter in was set on fire. According to the official estimates, 48 people were killed and over 250 were injured. Another 48 people are considered missing. Odessa regional councilman Vadim Savenko believes that the Kiev authorities have understated the number of casualties – he claims that 116 people were killed.
