Pro-Russian activists lays flowers as police stand guard outside the burned trade union building in the southern Ukrainian city of Odessa on May 3, 2014. More than 30 people were killed in a "criminal" blaze in Ukraine's southern city of Odessa, as violence spread across the country during the bloodiest day since Kiev's Western-backed government took power. Ukraine's interior ministry said at least 31 people had died in the fire Friday, with local media reporting that pro-Russian militants were believed to have been in the burning building at the time.
