Former Rada Deputy: Children’s Camp in Odessa Was Set on Fire by Ukrainian Nationalists

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


Ukrainian nationalists are behind the fire in the children’s camp in Odessa. This was stated on the air of the “Russia 1” TV channel by the former People’s Deputy of Ukraine Igor Markov.

“7 hours prior to the fire in Odessa the ‘Donbass’ battalion, which the next morning accused the Odessa city authorities of participating in the fire, moved forward and stormed the mayor’s office.

We are dealing with the b*stards who burned children alive, in order to accuse political opponents and to change the power in the city. It was a repetition of the events on May 2nd,” said Markov.

The fire in the children’s “Viktoriya” camp happened on the night of September 16th. In total there were 150 children in the camp, and 42 children were in the building at the time of the fire. According to official figures, three girls died. The mayor of Odessa hasn’t excluded that arson could become the cause of the fire.

Now in Odessa a meeting takes place for the resignation of the mayor Gennady Trukhanov, in which 500 people – representatives of the far-right Ukrainian organizations – take part.
