ODESSA, August 15. /TASS/. Participants of a conference in support of LGBT rights in Odessa, in southern Ukraine, were attacked on Saturday with firecrackers and smoke bombs, the Timer newspaper reported on Saturday.
"Several people wearing masks threw firecrackers at us in the premises on Staroportofrankovskaya Street. Fortunately, no one was injured," an organizer of the event has told reporters.
Police have detained around 10 suspected attackers. "The goal of the provocation is to frighten us," the activist said.
Several other participants of the conference were also attacked as they attempted to picket the Odessa city council in protest against the local court’s decision to ban Saturday’s gay pride march.
During the picket, some participants clashed with passers-by.
