Ukraine lawmakers have engaged in a fistfight following a sharp division that emerged between opposing factions over events in the east of the country.


Lawmakers traded punches in Ukraine’s parliament in Kiev on Tuesday following a controversial statement by one of the politicians during a heated debate on the unrest in the country.

The ruckus unfolded after Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform (Udar) political party leader, Vitali Klitschko, told lawmakers that Ukraine was facing a “real war” after yesterday’s events in Kharkiv and Donetsk.

Following his speech, Petro Symonenko, the head of the Communist party, said lawmakers' own actions have brought down the government of President Viktor Yanukovych and set the precedent for the current crisis in the country.

“You are today doing everything to intimidate people. You arrest people, start fighting people who have a different point of view,” Symonenko said, while drawing a parallel between the seizures of public buildings by pro-EU demonstrators earlier this year and the events in the east of the country yesterday.

Nationalist deputies from the radical Svoboda party then rushed the podium where they seized Symonenko, which resulted in a fight involving several people.

The brawl comes after pro-Russia activists briefly occupied government buildings in several Ukrainian cities on Monday.

The protesters in Kharkiv declared independence from Kiev following a similar move by pro-Russians in Ukraine’s eastern city of Donetsk earlier on the day.

The demonstrations gained momentum after Crimea declared independence from Ukraine and formally applied to become part of the Russian Federation following a referendum on March 16, in which nearly 97 percent of the participants said yes to union with Russia.

ukraine is heading into a bad time because of the pro amerCIAn midan criminal thugs. the thugs will lose in the end,they always do,but they could destroy the country before they are eliminated. russia could send in special troops to kill all the thugs. this could be done over a 24 month period,thereby instilling fear into the heart of amerCIAs maidan thugs. evidence implicating the US and the EU could be left at the scene of every elimination. see how the west like their own "rules" to be used against them. evidence implicating other maidan thugs could also be planted to stir trouble between different criminal factions working for the US/EU criminal regimes. fight fire with fire. use the same WEST/US/EU tactics that were used to force out an elected,recognised legal govt to destroy every maidan thug.

I find your ideas of democracy strange, you condemn the US claiming they use tactics exactly like those you wish Russia to take, is that double standards or what?
