Russian terrorists understand only the language of force.
Famous Belarusian film director Yury Khashchavatski discussed clashes in Odessa with charter97.org.
“Odessa residents showed resistance to Putin's occupants. I warned about it. They began to do what they are doing in the Donetsk region, but Odessa showed them how its residents can resist it. I am applauding Odessa residents, honestly. Yes, many were killed, but there are no other variants of treating Russian terrorists,” he thinks.
According to the director, “although Odessa is mostly a Russian-speaking city, its residents showed they stand for Ukraine's unity”.
“The most terrible is that the attack on and killings of pro-unity activists were carried out under cover of the police. There are proofs that the attackers had assault rifles and guns. That's why people, who were shocked, insulted and angry at the attack, went to the trade union building. By the way, I called my friends from Odessa, and they confirmed it had happened that way,” Yury Khashchavatski added.
Armed accessories to terrorists in Odessa attacked a march of football fans for Ukraine's unity and opened fire on May 2. Pro-Ukrainian activists dismantled the camp of Antimaidan activists. Both parties threw Molotov cocktails during the clashes. The trade union building was set alight. According to the latest information, 46 people died. Participants of the clashes were set free yesterday following new disorders in Odessa.
