Lyashko Knocked Out During Rada Session

Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


Leader of the “Radical Party” Oleg Lyashko was knocked out during a meeting of the conciliatory council of the Parliament of Ukraine. The crushing strike was delivered by co-chairman of the “Opposition bloc” faction Yury Boyko, reports channel “112”.

In his speech, Oleg Lyashko began to accuse fellow Deputies of acting at the behest of Moscow and Brussels. And instead of improving Ukrainian cities, politicians, according to Lyashko, prefer to “travel to foreign countries”. When the leader of the Radical Party started to talk about the imprisonment of all those who are in Russia, Boyko quickly rose from his seat and with one blow knocked out the Deputy.

The footage shows the head of the Opposition bloc continuing to strike Lyashko whilst he is falling to the floor. Colleagues hold him back when he tries to reply to Boyko. As a result the fight concluded that the two deputies take their places and continue the meeting.

Earlier, Lyashko has already been in fights with colleagues. In 2014, on the sidelines of Rada, the leader of the Radical Party was knocked down by the Deputy Aleksandr Shevchenko. Lyashko himself after the incident stated that he was struck in the face by “a Deputy of Kolomoisky”.
