More Punch-Ups In Ukrainian Parliament

Tue Mar 19, 2013 8:37 pm

Absolutely disgraceful scenes. The third time that fighting has broken out in parliament in under a year.

Ukraine is a great country, but sadly divided and in a far more precarious situation than many realise.

Hmmm, isn't one of the Klichko (professional boxer champion) one of the members of parliament?

Hehe, indeed he is! But, he is reported to have stayed out of this outbreak of violence. I guess the participants should probably be grateful for that fact.

I can't say anything for Ukraine, but I guess I can say the USA hasn't done anything like this in a while....as much as Americans hate their government

It doesn't look like much of a fight, more like a bunch of guys swatting at each other. I saw a video of the last fight and I didn't even know what they were doing at first lol
Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)
