A budget debate in the Ukrainian Parliament became heated as politicians traded punches.MPs representing opposition parties interrupted the debate on the country's budget for 2014. Once things had calmed down, the 2014 state budget was approved despite the attempts to block proceedings.
The fight in parliament comes just days after Ukraine's opposition leader Yury Lutsenko was injured in clashes with police in Kiev, after anti-government protests again erupted into violence. Lutsenko, a former interior minister, was photographed lying unconscious on the ground with a bleeding head, after reportedly being beaten by a riot officer when he tried to intervene in a confrontation between police and protesters.
