SWINGING IN KIEV



Footage shows a brawl between opposition Ukrainian party members in parliament today. The fight was between members of the nationalist Svoboda [Freedom] party and the Party of Regions. The fighting broke out after parliamentary members voted to call up military reserves to 'protect Ukraine's border with Russia' and one parliamentary member told an opposition politician that his party "kills its citizens."
