A Ukrainian lawmaker has proposed the creation of a "parliamentary police" after a new brawl that ended up violently on Tuesday, Russian media report.

Dmitro Dobrodomov told Ukrainian TV channel 112 "serious fights" required the measure if such incidents are to be prevented in the future.

The fight emerged as Oleg Lyashko, the leader of the Radical Party, hit Sergey Melnichuk, a lawmaker who passed to the ruling majority and was called "carcass" by the former MP. The term is commonly used in Ukraine's Parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, for lawmakers who take the step, supposedly "for money" as MPs remaining in opposition usually argue.
