“In the nearest time, there will be some another high profile detentions in Odessa,” Ivan Katerinchuk, the newly appointed chief of Odessa regional Interior Ministry department, commented on Fuchedzhi’s arrest. He added that the case in hand is “bandits disguised as Right Sector and Maidan self-defense activists”.
Oleh Makhnitskyi, acting Prosecutor General of Ukraine, also claimed about the implication of the police in the Odessa events. “We can say that this was a staged action. And we can talk not only about the nonfeasance of the police, but about its implication,” he told journalists.
According to local authorities, as a result of unrest and a fire in Odessa, 46 people died and over 200 sought medical aid on May 2. Unrest in Odessa started Friday afternoon after a mass brawl on the Grecheskaya Street. The fight was started by football fans, who came from Kharkiv, Right Sector activists, as well as Maidan self-defense forces from Kiev that intended to stage a march on the streets of Odessa. They triggered clashes with Ukraine’s federalization supporters.
The radicals set on afire a tent camp on the Kulikovo Field, where signatures for holding a referendum on Ukraine’s federalization and the status of Russian language were collected. People from the tent camp hid in the House of trade unions, where the fire broke out.
According to Ukraine’s Interior Ministry, the house was set on fire by activists who occupied the building. However, multiple video recordings from the site of the incident and eyewitnesses point to the fact that the fire broke out after bottles with flame liquid were thrown at the building.
