CHSINAU, May 04 /ITAR-TASS/. Hundreds of residents of the Moldovan capital city Chisinau brought flowers and lit candles in front of the embassy of Ukraine in memory of those killed in mass unrests in Ukraine’s Black Sea city of Odessa on Sunday. The action was initiated via social networks.
“What happened in Odessa cannot be explained from the point of view of human morality. I lit a candle with a thought ‘It cannot be forgiven!,’” said one of the participants in the action.
Unrests erupted on Friday, May 2, with a mass fight started by football fans from Kharkov, Right Sector radicals and members of the so-called “Maidan self-defence” force from Kiev, who had decided to march along the streets of Odessa, thus provoking clashes with the supporters of Ukraine’s federalization. Radicals set fire to the building of the Odessa region Trade Union House and a tent camp where federalization supporters collected signatures in favour of holding a referendum on the federalization of Ukraine and granting the official state language status to the Russian language. As a result, 46 people were killed and over 200 had requested medical attention.
