'Another Russia' party members stage provocations on the second anniversary of the Odesa tragedy - party leaders
On May 2, pro-Russian activists attacked the Ukrainian embassy to Russian Federation in Moscow.
Members of Eduard Limonov's party 'Another Russia' threw firesticks at the embassy building while shouting "Death to butchers! Free Odesa!"
The local unrest is said to mark the second anniversary of Odesa bloodshed which took place on May 2, 2014.
Three persons have been arrested, according to one of 'Another Russia' leaders.
NOTE: On 2 May 2014, the deadly clashes broke out in Odesa's centre, where several people were shot. These murders culminated in a large confrontation at the Odesa Trade Unions building, in the Kulikovo Field, where the pro-Russian activists were overwhelmed by the Maidan supporters. The building the 'Antimaidan' members holed up in was torched in unclear circumstances, and 42 people died, some were burned alive, some jumped from the windows to their deaths.
