Brawl in Ukrainian parliament

Taiwan and the Ukraine have the most interesting sessions in their parliaments. Both are known for their members of parliament fighting and brawling while conducting business at hand. This latest brawl is from the Ukrainian parliament yet again. It occurred on December 12 and it involved opposition members and pro-government deputies. Numerous fights and shoving matches occurred as members of various parties approached each other. The deputies were seen creating chaos by pushing and clothes pulling.
World heavyweight boxing champion Vitaly Klitschko chose to look on and did not join into the brawl. With all the nasty mud slinging in Hungarian politics lately, we can only wonder if something like this could occur in the Hungarian parliament. If it did happen, Fidesz would win the brawl easily as they currently have a majority in parliament.
