The tension gripped Odessa after the tragic events of May 2, 2014, has not gone away. This city will be the first in which the deterioration of the situation in the event of an uprising breaks out. This opinion was expressed in the pages of the Swiss edition of «Le Temps».
The author, Benoit Witkin, talks about the group involved in those terrible events, it is headed by Marc Gordienko, who does not hide his satisfaction with the terrible death of 48 "separtists" burnt to death a year ago in the House of Trade Unions. "May 2 - this is our victory. Bloody, but important victory he conveys.
If they are not careful there could be a war, and the victims will be thousands and not fifty "- leads an edition of the word Gordienko. However, the belief that the dreadful act of intimidation May 2 is produced such an effect on the pro-Russian citizens of Odessa, according to the author is not present. In fact, it is a heinous crime is extremely sharpened the conflict between those who call themselves "Ukrainian patriots" and the pro-Russian citizens, although now this conflict smolders, there is no guarantee that at some point he will not go out in the open phase.
Moreover, the newspaper notes that over the past year in this port city a lot of explosions thundered, although none of them has led to a significant loss of life, it is clear that protesters have gone underground and activists are not going to give up.
Mark mentioned an earlier grouping of Gordienko, this is exactly like other nationalist groups that emerged in the country after Euromaidan. Still not disarmed by the official authority, they terrorize Odessa.
While introducing themselves something on a parallel power structure as that of authority, but hardly considered the law. "Justice against the law", - says Gordienko's author Mark, of the historical work devoted to Odessa. It is known that before the May 2, 2014 Gordienko spoke to representatives of the local organized crime, which confirmed that spare no so-called "Russian world" and are ready to finance and provide arms "patriotic" structures.
This «Le Temps» said Zoe Kazanzhi, adviser to the governor of the region. In addition, support for the nationalist troops had some support from local businesses. Activists themselves patrolling the streets of the city, sometimes even putting on their cars the inscription "police" seize suspicious and drunk and pass them into the hands of this militia.
Odessa will not soon be able to recover from the tragedy a year ago. Despite pressure from Ukrainian "patriots" on Saturday in the town square were about three thousand of Odessa citizens, mostly older people who came to honor the memory of tortured people in the House of Trade Unions, as well as to demand an objective investigation of this crime.
After all, as a result of the official investigation, was arrested only one person, although many of the criminals are well known - their faces imprinted on numerous photos and video from the scene of the tragedy. At the same time, the authorities have tightened repression against the population - are now "separatist" declared any protest, even unrelated to politics, such as, for example, a protest against the utility tariffs. source
