Break-up of Ukraine continues: Odessa declares independence
Residents of the Odessa region of Ukraine are trying to join the Donetsk and Lugansk announcing the creation of the People's Republic of Odessa. Anti-Maidan activists of the region declared the establishment of the republic and urged residents to block traffic, rusnovosti24.ru website says.
"From today, the Odessa region is the People's Republic of Odessa, where the power belongs only to the people residing on its territory," a statement on the official website of Anti-Maidan said.
Activists urged on residents to block traffic in Odessa. It is planned to block all types of traffic, except for ER vehicles.
"Odessa is a democratic, multi-ethnic and tolerant cit , and here it is the majority consisting of local residents that makes decisions, rather than agents of the CIA, the Security Service of Ukraine, the FSB, governors and deputy-tutes," wrote the authors of the proclamation wrote on the website.
It should be noted that it took Odessa a whole month after the ethnic cleansing with the use of chemical weapons on May 2 to start its movement toward Donetsk and Lugansk. Another republic that has separated from Ukraine may undermine the offensive of the Kiev army.
