Ukrainian MPs fist-fight caught on video...again


An angry punch-up between two Ukrainian MPs has been captured on video.

Volodymyr Parasyuk and Olegsandr Vilkul were recorded fighting in the studios of TV channel 122 Ukraine soon after an on-air appearance. Parasyuk is then seen kicking and keying the bonnet of a car used by Vilkul. (Watch in video player above)

Ukrainian politicians have form for fighting. Parasyuk himself was at the centre of the action in June this year, trying to snatch the microphone of Dmitri Kolesnikov, which sparked a mass brawl in the Ukrainian parliament.

There was a brutal one-on-one between Yegor Sobolev and Vadim Ivchenko in the corridors of parliament in February, 2015.

And a debate over a controversial langauge bill got physical in May 2012, leading to another bloody clash of MPs.
