Ukraine | Odessa massacre anniversary: struggle continues

On May 2, actions of solidarity with Odessa citizens who fought against Ukrainian fascists and died during a fire in the House of Trade Unions will be organized in many countries of the world. However, the Ukrainian fascists are going to celebrate this day differently. Several ultra-right factions will celebrate their victory on this day and march through the center of Odessa. “Right Sector”, “Svoboda”, National Squads and other less known fascist groups are among the organizers.
The organizers held a press conference. There they claimed that May 2 was “the day of establishing the Ukrainian order”, and they plan to celebrate it annually. Also at a press conference, they called May 2 “the day of the victory of Odessa”, and the massacre in the House of Trade Unions, according to the fascists, is a “lightning-fast anti-terrorist operation”. As always, the fascists shift responsibility for mass killings to their victims. So, the leader of the Odessa “Svoboda” Konstantin Vasilets believes that the inhabitants of Odessa are responsible themselves for their deaths, because they needed not to resist, but go home. The leader of the bandit grouping “Street Front” Demian Ganul said he does not consider the victims as a people and does not see any reason to mourn because of their death.

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. The same, according to her, concerns the tragedy of May 2 in Odessa. “Relatives of the dead need justice – this is the main element in combating the atmosphere of lawlessness,” Fraser emphasized.
The UN mission also expressed concern over the existing pressure on the judicial system in the country, intimidation and criminal prosecution of judges in resonant cases.

Greece | Greek football fans remember Odessa martyrs

February 15 Greek football fans counteracted Ukrainian fascists. Greece has strong anti-fascist trends in football fan movement, while racists and far right completely occupied Ukrainian stadiums.

Greek fans from the Antifa Block of AEK team hung out for the match AEK – Dynamo banner of this content:
“Odessa 02.05.2014 – Never forget, never forgive!
Solidarity with anti-fascist resistance in Ukraine and in the Donbas!
– AEK Antifa Blok »
On the other banner is written in Russian: “1942 – Start, 2018 – D Kiev. You do not respect your story yourself.”
This banner refers to the legendary Death Match played in the Nazi-occupied Kiev in the summer of 1942 between local and German teams. Most of the Ukrainian players favored the club of Dynamo Kyiv. Some time after this game, a number of football players were put in concentration camps, and some were shot.
On other banners the following slogans were written:
“Love AEK, hate racism!”
“Kick the fascists out of football!”
Unfortunately, the legendary Dynamo Kiev team, once a pride of Soviet Ukraine, is now controlled by fascists and fans of the KKK. Their ultras became notorious for their Nazi salutes, swastikas, white sheets of the KKK and racist attacks on the “non-whites”.
All this is well known abroad, and for those who did not know, the hooligans of the Dynamo helped them find out when they attacked the Russian-speaking people who were accidentally met in the center of Athens before the match.

USA | NATO: Moving Ever Closer Toward Russia

By Phil Wilayto

When the North American Treaty Organization, or NATO, was founded on April 4, 1949, it had 12 members: the U.S., Canada and 10 Western European countries. By then the wartime cooperation with the Soviet Union was long over and NATO was essentially an anti-Soviet military/political alliance.

Voici la lettre que notre amie Monika Karbowska adresse à un certain nombre d’entre nous avec mission de la diffuser , dans ce pays où les défilés à la gloire des nazis et des collaborateurs ukrainiens deviennent habituels, dans ce pays où en toute impunité on brôle 46 personnes dans la maison des syndicats et où après ce crime seules les « mères » des victimes sont inquiétées, dans ce pays où le communisme est interdit, réprimé pour mieux exalter les nazis, le tout avec la bénédiction de BHL et bien d’autres russophobes y compris trotskistes(alors qu’en Ukraine les trotskistes sont également réprimés par les fachos), une communiste ne peut franchir la frontière. Notez que c’est en tant que française (pas polonaise) que Monika est refoulée, qu’en disent les autorités françaises?
