The terrible events of May 2 in Odessa were the open manifestation of fascism, but no one has been arrested for the grave crimes, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said during a meeting of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.

"On May 2, in Odessa, unarmed people, including women, were burnt alive in the House of Trade Unions. They opened fire on those, who was trying to save their lives by jumping out of the windows. They were gloating over people's deaths, mocking dead bodies. They were happy about the number of dead bodies. They were not hiding their joy of the victory over Russians. We have witnessed an open manifestations of fascism," the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

"No one of the radical nationalists, who committed the heinous crime, has been arrested. The authorities in Kiev vaguely expressed condolences, declared mourning and filed an investigation. However, few will be surprised if this investigation is shelved, as it happened with the investigation of sniper shootings in the Ukrainian capital in February," Lavrov said.
