On 2 November, Odessa residents gathered near the Dom Profsoyuzov at Kulikovo Field to commemorate the six-month anniversary of the deliberate arson that took place there earlier this year.
On 2 May, Odessa and Kharkov football ultras, pro-Euromaidan extremists, and neofascist nationalists attacked pro-federalisation supporters. Mourners launched black balloons launched at the memorial ceremony near the Dom Profsoyuzov.
Pro-Kiev junta radicals and Right Sector extremists blockaded anti-government protesters inside the Dom Profsoyuzov and set the building on fire using Molotov cocktails. When people attempted to escape the conflagration, the encircling crowd used force to force them back into the burning building.
The resulting conflagration killed at least 48 people and injured over 200 more.
Local officials accused the Kiev junta of covering up the affair; they state that the actual death toll is at least 116.
Similar memorial events also took place in several European cities, such as Rome, Madrid, Berlin, and Warsaw.

Every time that you pass a “Ukrainian Catholic” or “Ukrainian Orthodox” church, you pass a conventicle whose hierarchy supports murder in the Ukraine. “A knife for the Moskali!” They do NOT condemn such evil… I need say no more. The people who worship in such places aren’t all enablers of enormities… but all too many are, including most of the priests (“The Ukraine is for Ukrainians only”, as one said). Russian Orthodox people and their church support and care for the innocent victims… Uniate and Ukrainian Orthodox institutions back the gore-spattered murderers and call for MORE bloodshed.
Reflect well that the Republican Party positively drools in delight over these murders and praises the unrepentant murderers (it also denigrates and brutalises the victims… it gives you the full measure of the malevolent godlessness in Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz… only the “religious” can plumb the uttermost depths of greedster theomachy). If you needed proof that the GOP is irredeemably evil… well, this IS that. No decent person can have anything to do at all with such wicked groups. Have a care…
The present Ukrainian state is a demonic artifice, and that’s that…
