As previously reported, riots broke out in Loshchynivka, the Odesa region, after an 8-year-old local girl was found dead in an abandoned house on the village outskirts on Aug. 27. A 21-year-old Roma local was detained as the murder suspect, after which several Roma homes were ransacked by locals. More than 300 people took part in the unrest.

The suspect, in turn, does not plead guilty. He gave testimonies first but abandoned them afterwards. According to locals, the Roma settled in the village three years ago and have been involved in robbery and drug dealing, beating up and bullying of villagers since then. The local police have been ignoring the people's complaints.
