Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


On May 21st Euromaidan activists attacked the office of the Jewish businessman Roman Kuper, who entered into a conflict with the leader of the “Public Safety Council” group Mark Gordienko.

As the correspondent of TIMER reported from the place of events, about 100 activists from various organisations, including former and current members of Self-defense of Odessa, the activist Sergey Khodiyak accused of murders on May 2nd and others, arrived under the office of Roman Kuper on Fontanskaya Road.

They threw eggs at the building and also broke the car of the security firm protecting the office of the businessman.

The police created a cordon between the parties to the conflict.

As a reminder, the conflict between Roman Kuper and Mark Gordienko started when the latter begun to extort a large sum of money from the businessman [related to the “ATO” – ed]. Subsequently, Roman Kuper ,who came on May 2nd to lay flowers on Kulikovo Field offended Gordienko, having promised, we quote, “to bend him over”.
