Chairman of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky:
“The accusations of Russia from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine about the reluctance to find out the causes of the tragedy in Odessa are cynicism and arrogance. The Russian side at all possible levels called for an objective investigation of the circumstances of the Odessa Khatyn, but, unfortunately, there are still no real results.
The regime of President Poroshenko, with the tacit consent of his Western patrons, deliberately delayed the investigation, and the team of President Zelensky also did not make serious efforts to establish the truth. Now, in the interpretation of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry six years after the tragic events, it turned out that it was their fault …. Russia.
Kiev, following the example of its overseas curators, is trying to relieve itself of responsibility and find justification for its own criminal inaction due to an external factor. With such statements, the Ukrainian authorities continue to cover the Nazis who unleashed the bloody massacre in the House of Trade Unions on May 2, 2014.”
