Brawl in Ukraine's parliament

A brawl erupted in Ukraine's parliament on November 14, 2016, when leader of the Radical Party parliamentary faction Oleh Liashko accused co-chairman of the Opposition Bloc parliamentary faction Yuriy Boyko and other Bloc members of cooperation with Russia.

Boyko raised from his seat and punched Liashko in the face several times. Liashko took a defensive position without fighting back.

Parliament speaker Andriy Parubiy later warned Boyko he might be barred from attending several parliament meetings for such a behavior.
