– Odessa slaughter survivors reveal their side of story in intl photo exhibit (RT, Aug 12, 2014):
Survivors of the bloody Odessa May 2 clashes and subsequent tragedy at Trade Union House, where nearly 50 people were burnt alive, have organized international photo exhibits in order to convey the events with a new clarity denied to viewers by Kiev.
Violent clashes erupted on May 2 between rival rallies of anti-government protesters and radicals supporting the coup-imposed Kiev government. The confrontation led to a tragedy that left 48 people dead and 247 injured, as nationalists burnt the protester camp and then set fire to Trade Unions House with anti-Kiev activists trapped inside. The actual death toll could be much higher, as many of those who managed to escape the flames were then either strangled or beaten with bats by radicals, according to witness reports.
