Ukraine | UN: There is no progress in the investigation of the Odessa massacre

The the United Nations Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine reproached the law enforcement agencies for the lack of progress in the investigation of the shooting at the “Maidan” in 2014 and the tragedy of May 2 in Odessa. This was reported by the head of mission Fiona Fraser during the presentation of the 21st mission report.
“Four years after the events of the Maidan in Kiev, we still do not see significant progress in the investigation and bringing those responsible for these events to justice,” she said.
