Ukraine's parliament is known for it's regular eruptions of violent physical debate, and stampede like brawls.
The Верховна Рада України, or Supreme Council of Ukraine, is a parliament composed of 450 seats and one chairman, located in the capitol city, Київ (Kyiv) [wiki]. Disputes arise for many reasons. Last December it was over electronic voting procedures for absent members. A lot of the time it's general conflict arising between Nationals, Communists, pro-Russian, and pro-Western parties.

Ukrainians might feel embarrassed about the way their politicians handle themselves in parliament but you really have to contrast it with something else, perhaps with how Irish politicians debate topics in Dáil Éireann...
As you can see from this image taken during a 2012 debate, Irish politicians clearly don't give a shit. They can't be bothered to even show up, let alone start swinging at each other. Irish politics is complete and utter corruption. So we might laugh at the bar-room antics of Ukrainian MP's but at least there's a bit of political integrity and honesty, to getting clobbered over your head for your beliefs.
