Council of Europe: An investigation into the tragedy in the Odessa House of Trade Unions did not meet the requirements of the European Convention

On Wednesday, an international advisory group of the Council of Europe presented a report on monitoring the investigation of events in Odessa in May last year, when, according to official figures, about 50 people died and the total number of victims exceeded 250 as a result of a fire in the House of Trade Unions.




In the published document it is noted that the investigation of the Odessa tragedy was carried out without taking into account the requirements of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), and the local MoES and the investigating authorities did not have enough “institutional independence”.

“The group found that the investigation could not meet the requirements of the European Convention on Human Rights,” the extract from the RIA document “News».

It is also emphasized that the deficiencies discovered undermined the ability of the Ukrainian authorities to bring those responsible to justice.

“Although this can be partially explained by objective difficulties, the Council believes that the shortcomings pointed out in this report have undermined the ability of the authorities to establish the circumstances of the crimes related to Odessa and bring those responsible to justice,” the report says.

The head of the consulting group, Nicolas Bratza, noted during the press conference an insufficient level of independence of the investigation.

“Given the evidence that indicates the involvement of police officers in the 2 riots in May 2014 in Odessa ... (required), the investigation of the riots in general should be carried out by a body completely independent of the police officers. Similarly, given the structural links between the state emergency service and the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the investigation into the actions of the fire service cannot be considered independent, ”he said.

The report also reports insufficient public information.

“The 2 events in Odessa in May of 2014 were so important that the authorities were obliged to provide sufficient information about the investigation in order to promote effective public control. Although the authorities published a considerable amount of information, this was done in the absence of an effective communication policy, and, as a result, some of the information was incomprehensible and contradictory, and was also provided unevenly and with insufficient regularity. (...) The information that was presented to the general public was not in itself sufficient to protect the rights and legitimate interests of the victims and their relatives, ”the report says.

    The investigation was led from Washington and therefore the perpetrators of the deaths are not identified.

        Rhetoric is changing. President Poproshenko is directly pointed out to his "shoals", encroaching on the "holy", on the Maidan! Of course, the accusations made cannot be called the last warning, but the attitude of Europe towards Ukraine is getting cold before our eyes, and how this will all end is a big question.

        What is encouraging is the great availability of videos about this massacre. Moreover, the executioners themselves also took off. So they will have to answer in every way!

        Utter nonsense! The only reasonable explanation for what happened in Odessa is the gangster regime in Ukraine! How much they ss uki still good people in Ukraine will destroy - these poroshenkiyaytsenyukiavakov - scary to imagine! But this does not bother Europe - they have worse problems than refugees (as they see it)!

    As always, the CE statement consists of omissions and hints.
    The fact that the authorities committed a terrible crime by burning people alive, hindering their salvation, finishing off the survivors and pursuing the survivors is never voiced by these arrogant Europeans.

      No, in Odessa there are very few Odessa residents. There are only housekeepers and occupiers.

        I agree. If in Odessa at least half a city came to the barricades and protests, then there would be a result, and so ... They are at least Russian, at least Ukrainians, at least Romanians, etc. ... However, the mentality.

          After the events in Odessa, I called a friend - to find out the situation. The answer struck "There are not Odessa residents. Transnistrians and from the region." This came to Odessa 25 years ago from Rivne, and worked in the police. Donbass then stirred up "not childishly."

    “The Panel found that the investigation failed to satisfy the requirements of the European Convention on Human Rights

    At least something more or less intelligible was squeezed out of themselves.

    Where were they before? One and a half years have passed since the murder in Odessa. Or received an order to crush the junta?

    Council of Europe: An investigation into the tragedy in the Odessa House of Trade Unions did not meet the requirements of the European Convention

    Well, still .. one of the ODESSA police officers Dmitry Fuchegi is in Russia and gives testimony (sings like a nightingale) .... although at the time of the tragedy he did nothing to stop the crime.

    the investigation failed to meet the requirements of the European Convention on Human Rights

    Woke up or what? Better tell me what actions, and even more so the investigations of the Kiev authorities correspond to this convection? What was visible to everyone and Europeans in particular was quietly ignored, distorted, falsified under the tacit consent of Europe. What they have sown, so reap.

    How to recognize when power is involved in a crime, but reluctance?
    There are all sorts of OSCE, human rights defenders ............... But when they are hunting, F-16 and Tomahawk immediately fly to the scene of the crime !!!

    If you have already killed the blogger for the wild joy about the crashed airbus (I hope that’s exactly why), then not everything is lost in Ukraine and the line at the cemetery is slowly moving, and each participant in the May events is already waiting for his turn with a number. To everyone according to his deserts ...

    I can imagine with what torment the Council of Europe issued this conclusion, how they selected words in a more affectionate way to Kiev. After all, Europe recognizes this as its direct complicity in the development of Ukrainian fascism, and to some extent it is even, perhaps, ashamed.

    Well, soon we’ll get to the Maidan’s investigation, and there you’ll look at the tribunal to the Ukrainian junta. Just a European old woman, "wake up" gathered. belay no That's what ISIS bombing is doing, immediately they thought (God forbid) about their behavior.

      The old woman did not "wake up", she was awakened !!! I think that the rhetoric and movements of the West changed after the publication of the data of the Almaz-Antey experiment. Most likely, this experiment is nothing more than a reproduction of the true picture of what happened, having satellite images in front of my eyes ... So sideways, Uncle Vova made it clear to his “partners” that he knows (as they are “partners”) how everything was, accordingly has irrefutable evidence !!! But why explain such changes ?: the "moderate" opposition expressed a desire to cooperate with Assad, began to really wet the IS, the US Air Force began at least somehow thrashing the IS, Turkey announced that it would be threshing on the IS, Assad was left alone with immediate resignation , this statement of the European Commission on Odessa events, forcing the junta to peace, the Britons shut up with the participation of their Air Force in Syria, Canada jumped off the coalition, but there are a lot of other things, I won’t even remember ...

    International Criminals TO ANSWER !!!

    Well, that’s it ... Doubts are over
    Our callsign is “Odessa will not be forgiven ...”!
    It’s not for us to pray with God for luck,
    Cathedrals in the souls of each grow.
    And the hour will strike, and the mobile of midnight will perish
    Stripes of tape will lie on the sleeve ...
    And all the fragments will be collected
    For obelisks among succulent herbs.

    No, they woke up, but not about the crimes on the Ruin. Everything affects here, and the tiredness of the sanctions-counter-sanctions, refugees, the war in Syria, and Europe (not all) begins to understand that there is no way without Russia, which means that it is necessary to establish contacts and dampen the squeals of dill.

    The by-television population sees absolutely nothing and does not want to know.
    The hardest thing to wake up is not the one who is sleeping, but the one who pretends to be sleeping.

    What the hell is such an investigation? To merge all the facts into one toilet and forget it completely! Wolves are rag!

    Poroshenko, Turchinov, Yatsenyuk, etc. to the Hague in court!
