INTERNATIONAL: Ukraine Parliament turns Into ‘Fight Club’ as legislator attacks Prime Minister

A massive brawl broke out Friday in the Supreme Rada, Ukraine’s legislative chamber, when Parliament member Oleh Barna physically dragged Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk from the speaker’s podium.

The altercation began when Barna, who has started a petition to remove Yatsenyuk from office, handed the prime minister a bouquet of roses while Yatsenyuk was speaking and then proceeded to carry him off the podium.

Dozens of other parliamentarians rushed to defend Yatsenyuk, and a chaotic fistfight ensued.

Barna’s party, the Petro Poroshenko Bloc, ousted him from its ranks after the incident, CBS News reported.
