The sailor who led the uprising is killed and the men place his body on the dock in Odessa. The citizens of Odessa are upset about the death and support the men on the Potemkin by bringing food to them. This support is met with armed resistance by the Tsarist army. The citizens of Odessa are killed on the steps of the harbor.

The Russian navy then seeks out the Battleship Potemkin with plans to destroy the ship.
