Brawling in Kiev's Rada (Parliament)

These are the cats that Washington wants to send weapons and US military 'trainers' to support in Kiev.

A fist fight exploded in the Ukrainian Rada on Tuesday, after Ukraine's Radical Party (nationalists that want to rearm Ukraine with nukes) leader Oleg Lyashko reportedly started an altercation with Sergei Melnychuk, the leader of the Aidar volunteer (Neo-Nazi) battalion.

Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Vladimir Rybak attempted to stop the fight several times but the conflict continued until parliament was suspended. The fight later spilled out into the Rada's hallways.

From what I have observed these fisticuffs seem to happen quite regularly inside the Rada. Elected officials who are supporters of the self-defense forces in eastern Ukraine appear to have mostly been driven out of the Rada.
