Shkiryak reminded there are a lot of police in the city, as the locals mark the second anniversary of the May 2 tragedy. As 112 Ukraine TV channel reported, on May 2, 2014, forty-six pro-Russian protesters were killed and over 200 people were injured during a confrontation with pro-Ukrainian unity protesters at the Trade Unions House in central Odesa.

The Interior Ministry expects everything will turn out calm and fine. A lot of responsibility lies within the law enforcers, with the people responsible for safety measures in the city. The security measures, the way I see them, are unprecedented. About 3,000 law enforcers, in particular, Alpha team of the Security Service and Azov regiment, maintain public order. I hope no separatist provocations will take place in Odesa”, the official said.

Most recently, before the anniversary of tragic events in Odesa, Shkiryak insisted pro-Russian activists would resort to provocations in the southern-Ukrainian city.
