She noted that five of six murders in downtown Odesa on May 2, 2014 had not been investigated at all.

Besides, the death of 42 people during the fire at the Trade Unions House has not been investigated as well.

She said that a number of activists are systematically disrupt court hearings in the case upon the Odesa tragedy of May 2.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on May 2, 2014, a total of 48 people were killed in the clashes between separatists and Ukrainian protesters.

Most of them were killed in the fire at the Trade Unions House in Odesa.
