Many of the police donned red arm bands and supported / protected the Russian invaders:
The building which the Russians took over was set on fire during a molotov cocktail throwing contest:
Of the people killed in the fire or jumping from the burning building, none were Odes residents. By one report, 10 were from Trans-Dniester and 15 were from Russia. They had Russian weapons with them. The SBU published photos of their passports.
