Another day, another brawl in Ukraine’s parliament.
While defending his government’s record before lawmakers, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk was presented with a bouquet of roses by a member of parliament. That same MP, for reasons unknown, then grabbed Yatsenyuk by the waist and attempted to drag him from the podium. Things escalated from there.
This latest incident comes several days after Vice President Joe Biden called on lawmakers in Kiev to “put aside parochial differences” and make good on the promise of the 2014 Ukrainian revolution.
