Ukrainian parliamentary deputy Aleksey Goncharenko from the ruling coalition scuffled with the Opposition Bloc's Mykola Skoryk on September 23. The fight reportedly broke out when Goncharenko presented Skoryk with a pack of dried bread hinting would soon need it. Dried bread is common prison fare throughout the former Soviet space. Prosecutor-General Yuriy Lutsenko recently said he intends to strip Skoryk of his parliamentary immunity. The opposition politician has been accused of involvement in riots in Odesa in February 2014.
