On the eve of the march to commemorate the murdered politician Boris Nemtsov, police arrested a Verkhovna Rada deputy Aleksey Goncharenko, according to RIA Novosti. He may become the defendant in a criminal case which Russia’s Investigative Committee launched in connection with the events in Odessa on May 2, 2014.

Moscow MVD confirmed Goncharenko’s arrest. He will be transferred to the care of the investigators for processing. According to Interfax, the reason for his arrest has not been made known.

On May 2, 2014, Right Sector nationalists and their supporters attacked the Anti-Maidan camp on the Kulikovo Polye, then set on fire the Trade Union House where the protesters took refuge. 48 people were killed, over 200 were wounded; those who managed to escape the fire were cruelly beaten by the nationalists. Ukraine’s investigation has not identified the guilty parties, even though it acknowledged it was planned. However, no nationalists were arrested.
Goncharenko in Moscow prior to his arrest:

J.Hawk’s Comment: It’s not unprecedented for a Rada deputy to be held in a criminal case—Savchenko is also a Rada deputy, and there does not appear any prospect of her being released. The Odessa case is even more important to bring to a close-we’ll soon see whether Goncharenko is about to enjoy an extended stay in Russia.

Alternative Maidan [the author meant Maidan, as “protest”, as the term Anti-maidan was not yet common 3 days after the coup] on Kulikovo Polye was organized since the morning. One tent was set up in the middle of the square. They started collecting signatures and signing up people into people’s patrols. Promised to set up a tent city by the evening.
– We stand for order, and unity of Odessa, we don’t want any chaos,  provocations, toppling of monuments. We don’t have a leader, our leader is the city of Odessa.
– We want Odessa to have the Russian language, we want Odessa and our region, the South, to be in a good relationship with Russia. So that Ukraine is independent, we don’t need the EU.
– To be honest, I am against any government, I just want order in the country and my children to live in peace
The organizers say that the protest is peaceful. Everyone came without masks or bats.
– To support the activists who want to defend our city from the fascist occupiers. To express our point of view.
– Standing for the future of our children. For truth. How long can this go on? They got a free pass for their rampage. This is wrong. We have a democratic country and every person has a right to say their opinion.
There are no more then 100 people gathered on the Kulikovo Polye. This is several times fewer than at the first protest on Monday. By 8 pm almost no one is left at the square.

Kristina Rus:
Two months later the members of the new Ukrainian government were celebrating “the sweep” of pro-Russian protesters and this Maidan “victory” in Odessa:
In the video you can see the Trade Union house in the background, which will become a death trap for dozens of people. How many of the people interviewed are still alive? How many have been burnt or butchered in the basement of the Trade Union house? How many have been detained by the SBU?
Ukrainian and Western russophobes are so vocal about their hate towards the Soviet Union and the KGB, while in 2014 Ukraine has far surpassed the KGB in it’s brutality and trampling of law and human rights.
