This video shows the vibrancy of Ukrainian democracy (HINT: IT DOESN’T)

This recent video of a meeting of regional representatives in Kiev, show what is supposed to be a parliamentary meeting turn into an amateur bear-knuckle boxing match.

Sputnik reports,

“According to Alexandr Aronets, an activist of the party “Svoboda” (“Freedom”) who witnessed the incident, a conflict sparked after representatives of the Petro Poroshenko Bloc “Solidarity” demanded resignation of the council leadership. The video shows Poroshenko Bloc’s Vitaly Karlyuk approaching regional council head Anna Starikova and snatching the microphone from her. When Vladislav Khakhulin of the “Batkivshchyna” (“Fatherland”) party stood up for Starikova, Karlyuk punched the deputy in the face, knocking him out. An ambulance was called for Khakhulin”.

Political violence which has long been a regular occurance in Ukraine, has become increasingly normalised in Kiev ever since the 2014 coup ousted the legitimate President Viktor Yanukovych.
