Eyewitnesses also reported gun shots in the building of the Odesa Regional State Administration. According to preliminary information, no one was hurt.
Press secretary of the Odesa Governor Zoia Kazanzhy stated that Ihor Palytsia (Odesa Governor) did not invite Nestor Shufrych to a meeting.
"Nestor Shufrych was indeed beat up on the stairs of the Regional Administration. He allegedly went to meet with the Opposition Bloc. Together with Shufrych, he was a member of the regional council Mykola Skoryk, the former chairman of the Administration (during his tenure a large number of people was beat up on February 19). Skoryk was not beat up," said the spokesperson.
According to the 048 website, Shufrych, with blood on his face, tried to get away from the square, but several times he was caught and pushed to the ground. Mykola Skoryk was accused by the nationalists of organizing the massacre on February 19. After Skoryk stood up for Shufrych, he was also beat up.
