A self-proclaimed "prosecutor"of the annexed Crimean peninsula Natalia Poklonskaya has commented on the May 2014 tragic events in Odessa and all the commemorative events which were organized in honor of their anniversary.
According to the Russian Dialogue, the "prosecutor" thinks that the bloody events which took place two years ago, should be viewed as display of fascism. She noted that this was the very "fascism" that had not been "finished off" by the previous generation of widely referred as grandfathers in 1941-1945.
Poklonskaya noted this at the moment when hundreds of Odessa residents went out in the main streets of the city to honor the victims of that day.
The Russian official says she is surprised by the fact that she was declared wanted by the Ukrainian authorities. According to her, the government is persecuting her and other representatives of the occupation Crimean authorities, harboring criminals responsible for the May incident.
It should be mentioned that the roots of those events became the riots and protests which had been provoked by supporters of separatism.
The interview with the "prosecutor" was made by the well-known British journalist Graham Phillips. He is famous for his reports which promote a separatist movement in Ukraine, and trips to the settlements, which are occupied by LDPR militants.
Dialog.UA has reported that thousands of Odessa residents took part in a memorial service. Hundreds of people gathered on the Greek area in the evening. They knelt down and unfurled Ukrainian flags in memory of those who died on May 2.
