MOSCOW, May 1. /TASS/. A year after the tragic events in the southern Ukrainian city of Odessa, Ukrainian justice is not seeking to conduct an unbiased probe into the May 2014 massacre there, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement Friday.

The ministry said May 2 will mark “a year since one of the most tragic episodes of the intra-Ukrainian conflict – when neo-Nazis-Banderovites set on fire unarmed people in the Trade Unions House in Odessa.”

Banderovites is a negative term for followers of Stepan Bandera – a nationalist leader in Western Ukraine in the 20th century who collaborated with the Nazis during World War II.

“As a result of that barbarous act of intimidation, several dozen people, whose only fault was that they openly voiced their civil position of non-acceptance of an anti-constitutional coup in Kiev in February 2014 and rampancy of radicals-ultranationalists in Ukraine, died,” the Russian Foreign Ministry’s statement said.

“We state with deep concern that a year since those events, the Ukrainian justice is not making any tangible steps to conduct an objective, independent and unbiased investigation of that horrible crime and bring those guilty to account.”

“On the contrary, a clear course for spinning the process is felt. This is confirmed by a recent first report of the International Consultation Group on investigation of the Euromaidan events acting under the aegis of the Council of Europe,” the ministry said.

“We believe such a situation is inadmissible. Impunity for such crimes and gross violations of human rights committed during the intra-Ukrainian conflict cause a horrific precedent,” the statement said.

“We are calling on the international community, including human rights structures and NGOs, to decisively and honestly prompt the Ukrainian side to conduct a thorough, objective and unbiased investigation and bring those guilty to account, as well as to in general adopt real measures to remove egregious flaws in the Ukrainian justice system,” it said.

“It would just be irrelevant to speak of adherence to democratic values and supremacy of law without that,” the statement said.

“We not that the position of Ukrainian authorities’ patrons in the West and a whole lot of ‘free’ international media contributes to their carelessness and passiveness in that issue,” the Russian ministry said.

“According to our observations, little attention was paid to the Odessa tragedy in May 2014 in Europe and North America. This is a regular element of an information war and media manipulation,” it said.

KIEV, April 30. /TASS/. The rifts that developed between Ukraine’s ultra-right Right Sector paramilitaries and the General Staff of the regular armed forces of late may flare up with renewed force again, their leader, Dmytro Yarosh warned on his page in Facebook. He went as far as comparing his men to the armed gangs of Ukrainian Cossacks of the 16th century, who had escaped from oppressive aristocracy to a fortified area in the lower reaches of the Dnieper River, historically known as the Zaporozhian Sech. In this way Yarosh echoed threats from the Right Sector’s press-secretary, Artyom Skoropadsky, who on Wednesday warned his men would set fire to the presidential office building in Kiev.

On May 1 the situation has not changed significantly on the fronts of the DPR and the LPR. Local fightings continued in the area of ​​ settlements Opytnoye, Peski, Shirokino, Avdeyevka. Gorlovka and Donetsk were shelled, there were no significant destruction and casualties. There was a relative lull in the LPR, the traditional skirmishes were recorded in the area and of Bakhmutka at Schastye. In general, the situation remains stable but tense in Novorossia.
