AFP:

ODESSA, Ukraine: Hundreds of pro-Russian militants swinging batons and wearing helmets on Friday attacked a rally of 1,500 people in Ukraine's southern port city of Odessa demonstrating for national unity, an AFP journalist said.

Police intervened to try to break up the violence, which left dozens wounded on both sides.

Odessa is a small part of Heaven on Earth. What a great place. I was so lucky to spend 3 weeks there for four straight years. I love the place. I hope they don’t ruin it too much with all this fighting.

More bad news from Odessa.

According to Euromaidan PR the Trade Union House is on fire. Separatists trapped in building. Some ppl are beginning to jump from the windows. Firemen & self-defense forces rescues ppl from the upper floors.

Pro-Ukrainian activists providing medical assistance to pro-Russians. (A small glimmer of hope. If only Ukraina had been left alone to decide its own fate... )
