The morning session in the Ukrainian Parliament ended up in a fight. The squabble occurred after the voting on the law on the registration of religious organizations in Ukraine.

The law also changed the name of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate to the Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine. Some of the MPs of pro-Russian political forces clashed with their opponents from pro-Ukrainian and pro-European parties.
