The scene took place during an economic summit in Turkey that brought together the Black Sea countries.
The meeting almost turned into a public brawl. An unusual situation on the thick carpet of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation in Ankara, Turkey, brought together representatives of its various members.
On Thursday, May 4, an argument broke out between a Russian and a Ukrainian. A Russian ambassador could not bear to see the Ukrainian flag flying fully behind his countryman. A Ukrainian representative actually proudly stamped his blue and yellow emblem on the screen. The Russian’s blood ran wild, and he rushed to pluck the flag before departing.
A representative of the Russian Federation in Ankara insulted the Ukrainian flag during the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Parliamentary Assembly. Oleksandr Marikovsky, People’s Deputy from the People’s Staff Department, immediately responded.

The reaction from the opposite camp was not long in coming. Oleksandr Marikovsky, a member of the Ukrainian parliament, chased him down and beat him. Then others and security agents intervened and calmed things down.
