Video: Smoke Grenade Thrown By Ukrainian MP During Parliament Session
Svoboda Party Upset Over Minsk Agreement Legislation
The Minsk Agreement signed in 2015 between Russia, Ukraine, pro-Russian rebels in Donbass, Germany, and France called for certain legislation to be passed to define the status of East Ukraine to end the conflict that has claimed over 10,000 lives since it began in 2014.
The Svoboda, or freedom party, was not happy with the Ukrainian parliament giving approval to the Misnsk bills so an MP set off a smoke grenade in the Ukrainian parliament during session. There were also scuffles, reported RFERL.
