The tragic events in Odessa show that strong action is needed to stabilize the situation in Ukraine; sooner or later, the United States and the European Union will have to listen to Russia if they want any solution to the crisis.
On Friday, at least 40 people were killed and more than 200 injured in a fire in the trade union headquarters in Odessa where anti-majdan protesters sought refuge from western trained extremists.
The European Union "deeply saddened" by what happened and called for an independent investigation of the circumstances that led to the tragedy that claimed the lives of so many people.
The unfolding events in Odessa show what would have happened in Crimea if Moscow did not intervene.
Russia forewarned the EU and the U.S. that the crisis in Ukraine could spiral out of control and lead to chaos and humanitarian disaster if they support the Kiev regime that came to power by the active participation of neo-Nazi extremists -- neither the EU nor the U.S. have listened said political scientist Nikolay Mironov.
Experts believe that now, it is too late.
The spilled blood in recent days forever divides Ukraine; there is no chance anymore to hold a dialogue on national reconciliation said Mikhail Remizov.
Rather than investigating the causes of the tragedy, at this stage of the crisis the international community has to do everything to prevent similar events from happening again, which can be done only by federalizing Ukraine.
The Kiev regime can't control the country, the situation is out of control, "now we have to talk about how to enforce international law in Ukraine," said political scientist Nikolay Mironov.
