UKRAINE: MPs Brawl Over Russian Language Bill; 2 Injured.

      TO SEE 1:48 Raw Video...after :30 ad.

     Ukrainian news...is never boring.
     Regular observers can count on outrageous FEMEN topless activists...flash-mobbing and flashing their breasts for various causes...and pugnacious ex-PM Yuila Tymoshenko standing-up to her equally stubborn opponent President Viktor Yanukovich.
     Yesterday...an uber-violent brawl broke-out in its parliament...sending the deputy opposition leader and another MP to the hospital.
     The fight was over a bill making Russian an official language in East and South where about 10% of the populace are Russian speakers.
     But the proposal was seen by some as besmirching and encroaching on Ukraine's proud cultural heritage.
