Mourners grieve at coffin of Markin, regional parliament deputy who died in fire at trade union building on Friday, at his funeral in Odessa

Cities in eastern and southern Ukraine have become battlefields, as the junta in Kiev has unleashed military and paramilitary thugs on the people of those regions.

At the same time: the media, with its critical role in picturing public opinion, has also become one of the essential theaters in this ongoing conflict, with Western propaganda being one of the most potent weapons.

While the mainstream media is attempting to avoid assigning blame regarding who set the deadly fire in Odessa, video footage and images from the event make it very clear who was responsible, and even vaguely what happened.

On Friday, May 2nd, over 40 anti-Kiev pro-Russian protester were burned alive in the Trade Unions building in Odessa, Ukraine. The mainstream media has reported on the event as if how the fire started was a mystery, using cop out phrases like “the sequence of events is unclear”. Some have gone so far as to insinuate that Russia is responsible for the violence.

Now, while the sequence of events leading up to the fire may be unclear (and we’ll get into that below), the insinuation that the pro-Russian protesters barricaded themselves in and burned themselves alive is ridiculous. It also flies in the face of all the videos and available photographic evidence.

The number of murdered people may be as high as 300. Many of the victims, especially children and women, were hacked with axes and clubbed to death with wooden sticks in the basement of the Trade Unions House. Provocateurs dragged people into the building, where it was possible to kill them with impunity, with great relish, and without witnesses. Fire inside the building was directed in order to hide the 2mass murdering of Ukrainian citizens.

How The Odessa Massacre Started?


According to many videos, the tents on the square were deliberately set on fire, resulting in a great deal of  heat and flames in the area around the building. People were inclined to hide behind the massive doors of the Trade Unions House. Federalist supporters had no Molotov cocktails prepared in advance, according to witnesses. Where did the fire inside the building come from?

People behind the doors of the ground floor were attacked by the “Right Sector” thugs who were in there long before the executions began. The people at the main entrance were burned to ashes. Firefighters only appeared when the massive entrance doors were burned through (as is shown in the photos below).

These thugs shown in the next photo must be found. They could tell a lot about how the homicidal plan and its implementation started, and how and when they brought supplies for Molotov cocktails to the Trade Unions House.

Odessa Massacre 5
Below is raw footage from Odessa taken from multiple angles. In the beginning you see a crowd approaching. First they destroy the camp of the anti-Kiev protesters, setting the tents on fire. Then they begin to throw Molotov cocktails at the building.

And while the mainstream media is pretending that it’s unclear who was throwing the Molotov cocktails, it actually doesn’t appear to be unclear at all. The video below shows girls preparing the Molotov cocktails that were then used to assault the building:

More Photos and More Questions

Charred bodies appeared on higher floors where there was no open fire, and the simple question is WHY?

The next photo shows the same bodies from another viewpoint, and as we can see: the wooden battery panel, wooden railings on the stairs, and chipboard sheet don’t look burnt. The blue oval points to the barricade made of tables, chairs and cabinets, appearing as if it hasn’t even been touched by fire, unlike the charred bodies lying nearby.

The barricade was likely built by the “Right Sector” thugs in order to lock people trying to save themselves on the above floors.

Additionally, a body was dragged across the floor space from the real place of her death. Who did it and why? Judging from clearly visible blood puddle, the murderer fired at point-blank so the bullet passed through the skull (the second photo below).

You may notice that some dead people had only burnt heads and shoulders! It’s important to ask why their clothing below the chest is not burnt. Could it be that somebody poured flammable liquid onto the upper bodies of those people and set them ablaze. Could sunglasses stay on the face when a man tries to shake the napalm off his head? (photo below) Notice that hands and wrists of these people burned to the bones, too.

On the next and previous pictures, a strange “whitewash” can be seen on the floor. That is the powder from fire extinguishers used by the killers after the people died… in order to avoid burning themselves or from breathing in too much carbon monoxide.

The following photo shows a young man and woman who have been burned – there are no signs of an open fire on the hardwood floor, or soot from the smoke on the walls. These people could have been killed by other means.

Barricades were on the other floors as well. Blood on the floor. Burnt heads.

According to one of the mainstream versions of what happened on May 2 in Odessa, the “Right Sector” thugs performed a false flag operation. They put St. George’s Ribbons (symbols of anti-Maidan federalism supporters) and organized violent provocation against Maidan supporters (i.e. against their own allies), in order to later blame federalism supporters and make them look responsible for the deaths of many people.

The image below shows a dead woman near the elevator with clothes absent below her waist. Most likely, she was raped, then doused with a flammable mixture and set aflame.

The scariest picture… Most likely it is a pregnant woman who was one of the employees working on holidays, cleaning offices and watering flowers. She was strangled with an electrical wire. She tried to resist – one can see a discarded flower on the floor.

The following video recorded how this woman cried and called for help while being murdered (“HELP ME! HELP ME!” cries start at 0:20).

This is likely to be her killer:

The grisly events in Odessa, as well as the deadly assaults on Slovyansk, Kramatorsk and other eastern cities, undoubtedly mark a turning point in the conflict in Ukraine. More than merely an important moment, these criminal actions represent a “point of no return,” the moment at which any hopes for a peaceful and bloodless resolution to the crisis were dashed. Despite the droning propaganda emanating from Western corporate media, the world cannot and should not excuse these horrific war crimes.
