MOSCOW, July 10. /TASS/. Former speaker of the Georgian parliament, leader of the Democratic Movement — United Georgia party Nino Burdzhanadze has said the tragedy in Odessa should be investigated and those responsible punished.
"What happened in Odessa is impossible not to investigate, it’s impossible not to punish those people who committed this horrible crime in the 21st century," she told the international round-table meeting entitled "Pressing international legal problems of the 21st century on Friday.
The Georgian politician noted that "the perpetrators had to be punished and double standards eliminated."
On May 2, 2014, radical activists from the Right Sector designated in Russia an extremist group and the so-called Maidan Self-Defence burnt a tent camp in Odessa where the locals were collecting signatures for holding a referendum on Ukraine’s federalization and granting the Russian language official status. The supporters of federalization took refuge in the local House of Trade Unions, but the assaulters surrounded the building and set it on fire. The tragedy claimed the lives of 48 people, more than 200 were injured.
