"The beginning of this fight was a surprise for journalists, photographers and cameramen, who worked in the press box, because the deputies have been considering a bill on the Constitutional Court for more than an hour. Therefore, nobody looked at what was going on between the deputies until the noise started in the central passage. At first it was not clear who attacked Serhiy Leshchenko. They said it was the MP of his faction Ivan Melnichuk. People’s Deputy ripped the sleeve off the jacket of Serhiy Leshchenko. The fight was fairly short, because the other members rushed to his colleagues to draw them on opposite sides," said the reporter.
