Ukrainian MP Punches Russian Delegate at International Meet

A viral video has captured the moment when a Ukrainian Member of Parliament (MP) punched a Russian delegate at an international meeting.

The incident, which occurred during a meeting of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, has sparked outrage and calls for disciplinary action. In the video, Ukrainian MP Serhiy Leshchenko can be seen walking up to Russian delegate Pyotr Tolstoy and punching him in the face. Tolstoy falls to the ground, and Leshchenko is then restrained by other delegates.

According to reports, the incident occurred after Tolstoy allegedly made derogatory comments about Ukraine during a debate on the human rights situation in Crimea. The incident has sparked outrage among various political leaders, with many calling for disciplinary action against Leshchenko.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has condemned the incident, stating that “violence is unacceptable in any form.” Meanwhile, Russian officials have condemned the attack and called for Leshchenko to face punishment for his actions.

The incident at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe highlights the ongoing tensions between Ukraine and Russia. While the exact circumstances surrounding the incident are still unclear, the use of violence as a means of resolving disputes is never acceptable in a civilized society. It is important for all parties involved to work towards finding peaceful solutions to conflicts and to refrain from resorting to violence or aggression.
