Ishchenko said that the city will be flooded with police, and a provocation will not take place. 

Odessans prohibited by the decommunizated law from wearing Soviet symbols will be suppressed. Also, on May 9th, it is forbidden to criticize the government.

No one can prohibit citizens from wearing the St. George’s ribbon on this day, but the police are required to ask Odessans to remove symbols of Victory.
