Video: Ukrainian deputies in parliament building fistfight

They’re preparing for a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine, but not – it seems – in parliament.

Party deputies from the Self Reliance party and the opposing Fatherland party exchanged blows outside Kiev’s parliament chambers.

The fight was reportedly over a corruption bill.

The combatants both spilled blood…and both now face suspension.

Their colleagues say they’re hoping for a peaceful resolution, both in eastern Ukraine…and their own building.
