Over 1,500 Ukrainians went on a protest in Odesa against Russia's aggression, demanding the closure of Russia’s consular office in the southern port city. 

After gathering outside the Consulate Building, the demonstrators held a protest against Russian President Vladimir Putin for causing thousands of casualties in Ukraine’s east, and called for the international community to take a stand against Ukraine’s aggressive neighbor, Ukraine Today reports.

A vigil was held for the people killed and wounded after Russia-backed militants shelled residential areas of Mariupol with several volleys of Grad rockets on Saturday morning.
