Another fight occurred in Kyiv’s political life; this time, it was the scuffle between MP Yehor Sobolev (Samopomich party) and a supporter of political reforms in Ukraine. Myroslav Oleshko, volunteer of Myrotvorets research center reported this on Facebook.

‘Sobolev punched a man who rallied near the Parliament’s building; the beating started when the man said: ‘Me, the provocateur? I fought at Donetsk airport!’ Oleshko wrote, adding that the information on his actual part in the Battle for Donetsk Airport is now being checked.

As is known, the rally in support of political reforms in Ukraine is underway in Kyiv. It started on October 17. The leader of the ‘Union of New Forces’ party, scandalous Mikheil Saakashvili, was spotted on the square in front of the parliament, too. Leaders and common participants of the rally demand to cancel immunity for MPs, change the law on elections and create the anti-corruption court.
