Italy: Pro-Maidan protester disrupts Odessa massacre rally in Milan

May 2, 2016 at 20:10 GMT +00:00 · Published

Italian and Ukrainian activists protested in Milan, Monday, marking the two year anniversary of the Odessa massacre, where 48 people lost their lives during a fire at the Trades Union House in the city.

The protesters lit candles and laid flowers to honour the victims of the deadly tragedy. One pro-Maidan demonstrator interrupted the demonstration but was quickly led away by police.

Forty-eight people died, with over 200 injured, in a series of events that led to a large blaze ripping through the Trade Union building in Odessa on May 2, 2014. 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.

Despite international concerns and calls to investigate the tragedy, the perpetrators of the 2014 Odessa massacre have yet to be caught or prosecuted.
