The post-Euro 2012 hangover hit Ukraine hard last Wednesday, when a bunch of guys who hate the government started tearing into riot police in Kiev. Why? Apparently some idiot was trying to rush a bill through parliament that would have made Russian an official language in the country. I don’t know what your history is like, but the Russians and the Ukrainians don’t get on too well, so cue more clashes between MPs inside the parliament building. These then spread into the streets, where riot police fought opposition supporters who had brought their own tear gas along. Among them was Vitali Klitschko, leader of one of the opposition parties and heavyweight-boxing champion.
