In Odessa, the relatives of the victims in the House of Trade Unions were not allowed to hold a weekly mourning rally on Kulikovo field under the pretext of mining. This was stated to “politnavigator” by eyewitnesses.
Tight tape was in place around Kulikovo field, and immediately the bomb squad was on duty, with military dog handlers and firefighters.
Gathered Odessans discussed the plans for the upcoming dates — May 2nd and 9th. This time everything passed calmly. Ukrainian nationalists from Odessa watched from afar, and did not enter into skirmishes.
After the gathering ended, the “search for suspicious items” on Kulikovo field immediately ended also.
