Relatives of the Victims of the Odessa Massacre Demand Poroshenko’s Impeachment

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


In Odessa a meeting of the relatives of those who died on May 2nd, 2014, during the tragedy in the House of Trade Unions took place.

The participants voted on an appeal to the People’s Deputies of Ukraine in which they demand to initiate the impeachment of Poroshenko, because he interferes in the legal investigation into May 2nd.

Elena Brygar, the widow of the deceased Vladimir Brygar and the mother of 4 children, read the appeal of relatives.

In the document it is noted: “We demand to create in the Verkhovna Rada a commission for an investigation into the actions of the President of Ukraine, his participation in the freezing of the investigation into the tragedy on May 2nd, 2014. President Poroshenko bears direct responsibility for the lawlessness in our country. We demand from People’s Deputies to start the procedure of impeachment of the current President”.

“We are still convinced that we the President of Ukraine together with the Prosecutor General’s Office aren’t interested in investigating the Odessa tragedy, and in every possible way prevent an objective and comprehensive investigation into the deaths of people during the tragic events in Odessa,” wrote the relatives of the deceased in the House of Trade Unions.

The relatives of the dead are still convinced that the investigation is intentionally dragged on, its actual results are being concealed, and that three years later there are no suspects in the case.

Tatyana Kovriga – the mother of one of the deceased Nikolay Kovrigi – considers that the investigation and court hearings don’t give any notions about the real guilty party concerning the tragedy on May 2nd.
