A BRAWL broke out in the Ukraine parliament yesterday over a controversial land bill.
Rival politicians were pulled apart and the voting session had to be suspended. Tempers flared in Kiev as MPs considered reforms that critics argue could see land, considered among the richest in Europe, sold off to foreign investors.
Demonstrations also took place outside. Sale of land had been suspended for 20 years.
Andriy Dykun, chairman of the Ukrainian Agrarian Council, said the process should start with land offered first to individuals.
