Catherine the Great causes clashes in Odessa

A man, who's thought to be a priest, has been detained as Ukrainian Cossacks clashed with police in the city of Odessa. The fighting took place around a monument to the Russian Empress, Catherine the Great.

It was demolished in 1920 but reconstructed this summer – a move strongly opposed by the Ukrainian Cossacks.
After the clashes ended about 50 of them directed their steps to the city hall demanding negotiations with the Mayor.
Earlier, some Cossacks blocked one of Odessa’s main streets.
