Ukraine parliament hit by brawl, eggs, smoke bombs

Smoke from smoke bombs fill the session hall during ratification of the Black Sea Fleet deal with Russia, in parliament in Kiev, Ukraine, Tuesday, April 27, 2010 with a Ukrainian flag draped over chairs. Ukraine's parliament has voted to extend Russia's lease of a Crimean naval port for the Black Sea Fleet in a chaotic session during which eggs and smoke bombs were thrown. The countries' presidents agreed last week to extend the Russian navy's use of the Sevastopol port for another 25 years after the old lease expires in 2017.
