The Odessa from the village community Loshchynivka demanded to evict from the village all the representatives of the Roma. While the authorities are silent, local residents have begun the demolition of their homes.
20-year-old representative of the Roma, one of the Western branches of Gypsies is accused of murdering a little girl. The body of eight-year-old child who was raped, with stab wounds was found in an abandoned house on the outskirts of the village. Angry residents tired of the inhuman behavior of the Roma, staged a mutiny. And if he can develop into something more serious, “MK” said the analyst.
Denis Denisov, the head of the Ukrainian branch of the CIS Institute:
The situation in Odessa and in other Ukrainian regions is very intense. Social protest is growing constantly, based on the dynamics observed in the economic status of citizens. Only a small spark to any occasion led to inter-ethnic, inter-religious clashes. Similar kinds of threats are actual for Ukraine. The people are angry. The dynamics of deterioration of life constantly maintained. The conflict erupted in Odessa, has actually resulted in pogroms of Roma. It is the best illustration of that unhealthy situation that we see in the country as a whole.
