MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. Moscow has questions why the neo-Nazis of the Azov battalion have entered Odessa on the eve of the anniversary of the May 2 tragedy at the House of Trade Unions, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov said on Thursday.
"The neo-Nazi battalion Azov has been moved into Odessa. It’s another provocation of the authorities on the eve of the tragic anniversary of May 2. Do they want to repeat the crime? Dolgov said. "All this is happening against the background of Kiev’s odious unwillingness to objectively investigate the Odessa massacre and punish the real perpetrators. And the West keeps silent as usual."
The tragedy at the Odessa House of Trade Unions occurred on May 2, 2014. A sign-up campaign in support of a referendum turned into clashes between nationalist activists of the Right Sector (an organization banned in Russia) and the Maidan self-defense groups on the one side and federalization supporters on the other side. The clashes resulted in the local House of Trade Unions being set on fire. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, some 250 people were injured in the tragedy while 48 lost their lives.
