Gazeta reports:

The Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk was grabbed by the testicles during the annual government report to the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada. The meeting was broadcast in the channel “112 Ukraine”.

During his speech, Yatsenyuk was attacked by the deputy from the “Block Poroshenko” (BPP) Oleg Barna, who wanted to remove the prime minister from the rostrum. Moreover, Barna gave the PM a bouquet of roses with a mourning ribbon.

The MP from the BPP asked about the state of the country’s energy, to which Yatsenyuk advised the deputy to ask “his Minister Demchishin” (Vladimir Demchishin, the Energy Minister of Ukraine. – “Gazeta”). After this response from Yatsenyuk the BPP deputy lost his temper and rushed to the podium to remove him.

The incident escalated into a brawl in parliament between opponents and supporters of the Ukrainian Prime Minister. Finally, the MPs calmed down, and the leader of the BPP Yuriy Lutsenko apologized. Yatsenyuk called the participants of the fight “morons.”

Earlier it was reported that Yatsenyuk had declared his readiness to resign.
