Ukrainian Legislators Brawl

by Nathaniel Botwinick

The Ukrainian parliament had its first episode of fisticuffs of the new year yesterday. Members of a far-right party took exception to being called “fascists” by a speaker, leading them to face off against president Viktor Yanukovych’s party. Vitaly Klitschko, world heavyweight champion and head of one of Ukraine’s smaller parties, was present in parliament at the time, but did not enter the fray.
