Earlier today, a 20-year-old man with some sort of explosive device was detained at Derybasivska Street in central Odesa.    

Today, the locals brought flowers to the site of the tragedy, the Trade Unions House at Kulykove field in Odesa, where the severest clashes took place in 2014. Back then, on May 2, 2014, 46 pro-Russian activists perished and about 200 people were wounded during the clashes with pro-Ukrainian protesters in Odesa.

The police and the National Guard do not let anyone in; the locals argue with them and leave the flowers at their feet.  

The security measures in Odesa are tightened due to risk of provocations; road traffic is limited, key infrastructure objects are heavily guarded, and cell network goes haywire. About 3,000 law enforcers maintain public order across the city.
