Thousands of pro-Russian protesters assaulted Odessa’s police headquarters Sunday, days after deadly clashes and a fire there killed dozens of their comrades in what Kiev charged was a Russian plot to “destroy Ukraine.”
More than 30 people were killed in a “criminal” blaze in Ukraine’s southern city of Odessa, as violence spread across the country during the bloodiest day since Kiev’s Western-backed government took power.
During construction of a gas pipeline in southern Ukraine, workers found a mass grave containing the remains of thousands of Jews near an old concentration camp. A similar site was found last year, containing 3,500 victims. Representatives from the Jewish community say there are between 250 and 700 such graves in Ukraine, which explains why many have eluded discovery for so long.
