SEVASTOPOL, May 04 /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian federal city of Sevastopol has declared a three-day mourning for those killed at the Odessa House of Trade Unions. Entertainment events are limited until May 5. The republican flags are lowered half-mast at state administrative buildings throughout the Russian Republic of Crimea.
Acting Sevastopol Governor Sergey Menyailo offered condolences to the families of those killed in the Ukrainian Black Sea port city of Odessa and the main Ukrainian coalmining region Donbas.
“It is beyond understanding what is happening in Odessa and Donbas. It reminds us of films about the Great Patriotic War. This is horrible when people are burnt alive and killed in the streets. Current authorities are providing with weapons gunmen sucking blood on Maidan [protest movement in the centre of Ukraine’s capital, Kiev] and are trying to describe their actions as lawful. This power will not lead to anything good,” Menyailo said.
The days of mourning on May 3-5 are declared in the republic “proceeding from the need to honour a feat of innocent victims and expressing solidarity with the heroic fight of people in these regions for their civilised choice, sorrow for those killed and offering condolences to their relatives and the loved ones,” the press service of the acting Crimean head has made public a decree to this effect earlier.
