November 2: Two and a half years ago, on May 2, 2014, the Ukrainian government organized a mass murder of citizens of Odessa. People were killed by nationalists, members of various right-wing paramilitary groups. On that day I lost two of my closest friends – Vyacheslav Markin and Andrei Brazhevski, as well as two acquaintances – Vadim Papura and Vadim Negaturova. I almost lost my own life.
Today, together with comrades, I laid flowers at the Lugansk memorial to those “Fallen at the Hands of the OUN-UPA” [Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists – Ukrainian Insurgent Army], as the killers of Odessa are their direct heirs.
We will never forget and never forgive. The killers will still answer.
