USA: Activists call on Ukrainian Pres-elect Zelensky to investigate Odessa massacre

May 02, 2019 at 23:26 (GMT) · Published

A group of activists calling themselves 'Odessa solidarity Campaign' delivered a letter to the Ukrainian embassy in Washington DC, on Thursday, addressed to the Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky, demanding an investigation into clashes that took place in Odessa in 2014.

The events occurred in the southern city of Odessa and turned into clashes between pro and anti-Euromaidan demonstrators, that claimed the lives of 48 people injuring 200 others.

The leader of the "Odessa solidarity Campaign" Phil Wilayto says he sees the victory of Zelensky as a sign of obvious rejection by the Ukrainian people of ultra-nationalism, and he hopes that the new leader will launch investigations into the Odessa clashes of 2014.
