Odessa in Mourning
May 2, 2014 in Odessa will never be forgotten. When football fans’ demonstration for unified Ukraine was shot at by armed separatist supporters from behind the police forces’ backs, there began a fight that the police wasn’t able or willing to quell. Numbers of Ukraine’s patriots joined in to revenge for their dead brothers-in-arms. The dispersed separatists took a stronghold in the Trade Union building where some of them got burnt alive or suffocated after Molotov cocktails started a fire. With over 40 people dead on both sides Odessa will never be the same.
Boris Bukhman and Oleg Kutsky shot this sequence of images in Odessa on May 2 and 3, 2014.
