The fight occurred because organizers of the ‘Constitution Is Us’ rally turned up music too loud to prevent Irina Farion, a member of the Svoboda parliamentary faction, from making a speech due to exceeding time limit.

The fight did not last long, with no one having been injured. The rally is still ongoing. The opposing sides said that they fought for a common cause and called for a time limit of 10 minute for speakers to be observed.
