Russian journalist Andrei Maloslov interviewed an Italian volunteer in the Donbass, Adrea Palmeri. The interview was for a football TV programme called “Fanzone.” The Italian, who fought for the Donbass and received a passport of the Lugansk People’s Republic, shared some of his views as a foreigner in Eastern Ukraine.

“When on May 2, the Odessa massacre happened, it was very hard to understand, I can not forget about it even now.”

“There were fans from Kharkov, Kiev, Dnepr, a few from Donetsk, that actively took part in it. I do not understand how Slavs could have done this to eachother.” – said Andrea in response to a question about football fans of Ukraine, who took an active part in the events of 2014 on the side of nationalists.

On May 2, 2014, a group of football hooligans and Right Sector radicals attacked the anti-coup activists in central Odessa and set fire to their camp. The activists tried to take refuge in a nearby trade union building, the radicals, however, set the building on fire with Molotov cocktails, while at least one of the attackers was filmed shooting at people with a handgun. 48 people died in the building, some of those who survived the fire were beaten to death with bats on the ground. This made it the worst atrocity in Odessa since WWII.
