It all started with a bouquet of roses and a “crotch grab.”
The fight began between MPs from the president’s Petro Poroshenko Bloc (PPB) and Yatsenyuk’s People’s Front (PF). It allegedly all started when Oleg Barna (PPB) went up to the tribune while Yatsenyuk was giving a speech, presented him a bouquet of roses and then tried to carry him off the stage. Barna’s actions led to a fight that disrupted the PM’s speech. The brawl continued for several minutes involving members from both parties, although some were clearly confused, as seen in the video. When everyone had calmed down, representatives from both the PPB and PF apologized.
