Eggs, Smoke Bombs, and Fistfights. In Parliament.

April 27, 2010

Ukraine’s parliament collapsed into chaos during a debate about extending the Russian navy’s lease on a base.

Parliamentary speaker Vlodymyr Lytvyn was forced to dodge eggs and was later shielded by two aids with black umbrellas.

Opposition MPs set off smoke bombs and the debate had to be held over the whining of alarms.

There are several photos at the link, including this one:
