BRUSSELS, May 8. /TASS/. Members of the European Parliament have demanded from Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk to present results of the investigation into the Odessa tragedy and killings in downtown Kiev in February 2014, said an open letter received by TASS.
Thirteen members of the European Parliament from eight EU countries put their signatures under the letter appealing to Yatsenyuk to use all his opportunities for presenting immediately results of the investigation into the Maidan killings, mass killings in Odessa along with numerous examples of selective justice and procedural violations.
A total of 48 people died and over 200 were injured in the tragic events that happened in May in Odessa. A sign-up campaign in support of a referendum turned into clashes between nationalist activists of the Right Sector 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. The investigation carried out by two parliamentary groups and law enforcers hasn't identified the perpetrators to date. The United Nations has classified as ‘inadequate’ the actions by the Ukrainian authorities to investigate last year’s murders in Kiev’s Independence Square and the House of Trade Unions in Odessa.
