Video: Fist-fight erupts in Ukraine's parliament between communist and far-right parties

Post by Guest on Wed Apr 09, 2014 2:05 am

A fist-fight erupted in Ukraine's parliament over accusations of 'heavy handed' treatment of pro-Russian activists.

The brawl broke out after Communist party leader Petro Symonenko accused Ukrainian nationalists of being responsible for recent unrest in the country.

Members of the Svoboda All-Ukrainian Union ran to the front of the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's parliament in Kiev, and tried to push Symonenko from the podium.

It came just hours after Ukraine launched an "anti-terrorist" operation during which 70 pro-Russian separatists occupying government buildings were arrested.

Symonenko provoked anger in parliament by suggesting nationalists had set a precedent by seizing buildings in protest against ousted president, Viktor Yanukovych earlier this year.

Before being pulled away from the podium, Symonenko said: "You are today doing everything to intimidate people. You arrest people, start fighting people who have a different point of view."

Symonenko is not thought to have been badly injured in the parliamentary punch-up.

It's not the first time the seat of democracy in Kiev has erupted in violence.

In January, boxing champ Vitaly Klitschko watched as a debate descended into chaos after a surprise vote on tough laws to stop street protests was raised.

While today's fight led to nothing more serious than cuts and bruises, pictures below show January's scrap was a bloodier affair.
