On May 2nd 2014 the right sector and Maidan activists started rioting in Odessa. Those attacked the city in a coordinated action and delivered street battles with the police and local residents at noon.
The police was inferior to the armed and well equipped Euro-Maidan activists and members of the neo-fascist right sector. The fighting in the city continued. Residents desperately tried to protect their homes against the mob.
A member of the anti-fascist self-defense committees is seriously injured Maidan activists and EU supporters. His foot has been almost completely been cut off. The Police is trying to get the man first aid.
The residents and anti-fascist who desperately tried to defend themselves against the neo-Nazis of the right sector, but failed. They fled to the trade union building to entrench themselves there and to seek shelter. The Ukrainian neo-Nazis continued to pursue them. Then they started to prepare rocks and Molotov cocktails to attack and kill the anti-fascists.
It is clearly seen that the anti-fascists try to entrench themselves in the union hall and repel the attack.
The police is overstrained and retreats from the union hall. At the same time anti-fascists and civilians who are caught on the roof of the trade union house are trying to send SOS in Morse. However the security forces ignore these cries for help.
