` Banners of Glory Observe Remembrance Great Patriotic War of 1941-45 and Those Burned Alive in Odessa '

#AceWorldNews – SEVASTOPOL – May 04 – Participants in a traditional war memorial holiday dubbed “Banners of Glory” have observed a minute of silence on Sapun Hill not only for defenders and liberators of the Russian Crimean federal city of Sevastopol in the years of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945, but also those killed in the Ukrainian Black Sea port city of Odessa and in the main Ukrainian coal-mining region Donbas in the last few days.

City chiefs said in their speeches that for 23 years of Sevastopol being a Ukrainian city local residents succeeded to preserve a undistorted understanding of history and glorious traditions.

Participants in the holiday voiced indignation over actions of Ukrainian radicals and military forces, particularly the May 2 tragic events in the city of Odessa where clashes between far-right nationalists and federalisation supporters killed 46 people and around 200 sought medical aid.

What l find so horrible was that social media and their children of this patriotic war tweeted and laughed about people burning in the parliament building.

Are these examples of those who are laughing against people burnt alive, or have we no longer got the care in us to consider other people’s lives, are as important as ours. Should we start to understand that they fight for what they believe, as we fight for what we believe ,but when it comes to watching others die ,does the light and milk of human kindness get extinguished by our need to be right.

Should our children grow up with books in their hands and not Molotov incendiary cocktails.

They called the war Patriotic watching people burn and laughing does not seem patriotic and neither does it seem, that fighting for a cause should make people animals,

It may denigrate our responsibility as human being’s but it should never allow us to see a man, woman or child, suffer when we know we can do something to provide help.
