The incident took place during a meeting of the anticorruption committee. Parasyuk and Deputy Head of the Chief Anticorruption Department Vasily Pisny got into a verbal dispute which quickly escalated into a physical fight.

It was Pisny’s remark about him making more for the Maidan than Parasyuk that triggered the latter into action.


After the fight, Yegor Sobolev, Chairman of the Committee, had to call an end to the committee’s meeting.
