List of Victims of Fire in Odessa Published
The "Молодежного единства" portal has published a list of the people who died in the fire of the House of Trade Unions in Odessa on 2nd May.The list comprises the names and surnames of 38 victims, whilst earlier media reports had mentioned 31 fatalities.
There is a story spreading amongst the crowd gathered in front of the Trade Unions building about the alleged killing, by attackers, of people jumping out of the burning building– which only causes the moods amongst Russia’s supporters to become more radical. There has been no footage of the events on 2nd May to emerge, in order to confirm the rumours spread by Russians. The radicals’ narrative about the possibility of organising a coup is an element of the Kulikove Pole propaganda.
