Wild West Ukraine: Thugs pour milk on politician at council meeting, he draws his gun (VIDEO)
A Ukrainian politician took the phrase crying over spilt milk to a whole new level when he pulled out a gun on a disruptive right-wing gang and fired warning shots, during a city council meeting.
The incident reportedly happened on Friday in the city of Nikopol, when thugs from the extremist, nationalist Right Sector group stormed the city council meeting, demanding a change in the administration. They managed to derail the session, silencing the mayor and provoking angry shouting matches with some of the officials, including the mayor.
Arguably the key moment occurred after one of the protesters showered a council deputy with a dairy product. Enraged, the doused deputy pulled a gun, fired a warning shot into the ceiling and began brandishing it at the group, shouting threats and obscenities.

“You are a f*****g f****t, hear me? I f****d your skull!” he cried at one of those among his assailants, as heard in footage from the scene.
The mayor received his share of grief, when an activist doused him with green dye. Then a brawl broke out between activists and security personnel.
Such disruptions are not uncommon in Ukraine, where extremist groups have adopted this disruption tactic to pressure public officials whose policies they dislike. Law enforcement usually refrains from prosecuting such activists, apparently fearing a nationalist backlash.
