Terrorist Attacks

Terrorist Attacks

The largest hate crime recorded during the monitored period was the mass murder in Odessa’s House of Trade Unions on May 2, 2014. The victims were antifascist activists, predominantly Russian-speaking residents. The act was committed by extremist members radical nationalist groups and neo-Nazi football fans.

Six people were shot during the clash between Maidan and anti-Maidan activists in the city centre. Trade Union House, where antifascists took cover, was set on fire by neo-Nazis. 34 people died in the fire and 8 people died trying to jump out of the building.

On May 28, 2015, a bombing happened in Kiev’s Roshen supermarket, owned by President Petro Poroshenko. No one was injured. On the next day, right-wing Kiev Division posted a video of a man armed with a baseball bat assuming responsibility for the bombing. The organisation called President Poroshenko a “Jew dictator” and called for attacks on “the business of an illegitimate occupier, who destroyed our country”.
