The co-chairman of the Opopsitional Bloc faction Yuriy Boyko had a fight with the leader of the radical party Oleh Lyashko in the parliament during the coordination board.
The reason of such behavior was Lyashko stating that Opposition Bloc representatives are regularly visiting Russia “to get instructions”.
"Boyko and Levochkin are regularly visiting Moscow committees for getting instructions in the Kremlin. Others are visiting Brussels committees. When are you going to visit people in the villages, when go to miners, steel workers, instead of getting helpful hints abroad? You should get helpful hints from here. I have a question to SBU – why the are visiting Moscow and they are not yet imprisoned?” said Lyashko.
After these words Boyko, who was sitting next to the leader of the Radical Party, stood up, took Lyashko by his head and stroke him with his fist. A fight started, other MPs tried to set the fighters apart.
When the situation seemed to settle down, Lyashko continued his speech. But after the words “Yanukovych survivors”, the oppositional leader stood up and hit the colleague again.
The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy stated a remark to Boyko and threated him to raise a question on his behavior. Boyko left the committee after that. Andriy Parubiy ordered the coordination board to examine today’s incident.
