    May 2, 2015 marks exactly one year since pro-Kiev radicals had blocked anti-government protesters in Odessa's House of Trade Unions and had set the building on fire by hurling Molotov cocktails inside. The tragic incident saw at least 48 people killed and over 200 injured. Remembrance events have been held in Ukraine, Russia and several European countries in honor of those killed in Odessa's Trade House of Unions on May 2, 2014.
