Russia: Anti-US rally held on anniversary of Odessa massacre

Russian Federation, Yekaterinburg
May 2, 2015 at 22:26 GMT +00:00 · Published

Hundreds of people held an anti-US 'Stop Faschington' rally in Yekaterinburg, Saturday, to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the deadly blaze at Odessa's Trade Unions House which claimed the lives of 48 anti-Kiev protesters and to protest against US involvement in Ukraine.

Participants of the 'Stop Faschington' rally gathered in the centre of Yekaterinburg, holding pictures of the victims of the Odessa massacre, before marching to the US consulate. According to the protesters, Washington is responsible for the massacre because the US government had been sponsoring the Maidan coup with "billions of US dollars through non-governmental organisations". Participants of the rally held a memorial service for the Odessa massacre victims in front of the US consulate, laying flowers and pictures of those killed in the blaze.

Forty-eight people died, with over 200 injured, in a series of events that led to an inferno in the Trade Unions building in Odessa on May 2. After clashes erupted between anti-Maidan and pro-Maidan protesters, the latter group reportedly set fire to the Trade Unions House where anti-Maidan demonstrators had found refuge.
