An unbelievable and even live broadcast broke out in a Ukrainian television studio when a journalist attacked a pro-Russian politician who did not want to condemn Vladimir Putin during a period of tension between Moscow and Kiev.
This is not the first time that Nestor Sufrit has been beaten. He has repeatedly defended the rights of millions of Orthodox in his country.
The journalist punched the pro-Russian politician and then proceeded to lock his head. The incident took place in front of former Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and former President Petro Poroshenko.
Pro-Russian MP Nestor Sufritz has refused to condemn Vladimir Putin’s moves, prompting a reaction from journalist Yuri Butusov.
The journalist approached the MP and hit him in the face, causing him to hit. The MP got up to counterattack and the two of them fell to the floor, before the journalist shook his head at the politician. Terrified, the other guests of the show begged them to stop. Eventually the two parted ways and continued the discussion on the show.
Sufritz was asked if Putin was a murderer and a criminal. He himself refused to answer and limited himself to saying:
“This is something that the Ukrainian authorities should deal with.”
Former President Poroshenko criticized his response, calling it a “Russian agent in the studio.”
