MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine (HRMMU) published the report on the human rights situation in Ukraine.
"The UN report cites Kiev's unwillingness to investigate civilians' killings on Maidan and in Odesa. There are reiterated claims to punish those guilty and again there is no distinct reaction from the Ukrainian 'democratic' authorities to the demands to stop serious human rights violations and to punish criminals," Konstantin Dolgov, a special representative for human rights at Russia’s Foreign Ministry, wrote on his Twitter page.
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. The tragic incident left some 50 people dead while the overall number of casualties exceeded 250.
