BERLIN (Sputnik) — About 50 people gathered on Monday in the central part of Berlin to participate in a rally commemorating the second anniversary of the deadly fire in the southern Ukrainian city of Odesa, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported.
Representatives of human rights groups from both Germany and Ukraine, as well as Odesa's residents and journalists gathered near the Brandenburg Gate.
On May 2, 2014, pro-Kiev radicals blocked anti-government protesters in Odesa's House of Trade Unions and set the building on fire by hurling Molotov cocktails inside.
According to the official data, 48 people died and more than 250 were injured in the fire. No perpetrators have been brought to justice.
