Scuffles erupted between nationalists and police at the entrance to the Verkhovna Rada in Kiev on Thursday as protesters demanded the abolition of parliamentary immunity and early elections. Police officers deployed pepper spray, and some activists can be seen throwing smoke bombs and using pepper spray of their own. The brawls reportedly began after police pushed a driver out of a car parked outside of the parliament building.
