so the oddessa massacre didnt happen? lots of ethnic russians have been killed in ukraine. what are you talking about when you say that was a lie?
Odessa was nowhere in your post as you said Crimea. The claims made by Russia about ethnic russians being killed was made to the UN security council.
The council has asked many times for Russia to provide details / specifics and to this day they never have. All evidence to date shows the claims by
Russia are false and it was used to justify their invasion of ukraine / illegal occupation of crimea.
As for Odessa last I saw the investigation was ongoing. Ironically enough your (and Russia's) use of the term Odessa massacre and blaming Kiev forces
is interesting. The "Odessa massacre" occurred in 1941 when Nazi forces rounded up between 25,000 to 34,000 Jews and slaughtered them in a 2 day time
period with upwards of over 100,000 Jews / Romani's being murdered in the course of a year +.
I think the Odessa incident was probably pushed by pro russians / russians in the area to give russia further propaganda ammunition to continue their
"Ukraine government are Nazis" bs. Again, Ironically, the USSR tried to evacuate those civilians (Jews/Romani) to protect them from the Nazis.
I am thinking people need to open a history book once in a while to see what Russia is up to. If they did they would notice the Russians are doing
exactly what the Soviets did to the Tatar's. Persecuting them while forcing them to relocate.
'Russia's treatment of Crimean Tatars echoes mistakes made
Russia is doing the very thing they tried to use as justification to invade Ukraine - Removing anything that is tatar's related to suppress the tatar
population in Crimea. Up to and including forced relocation of tatars.
