They're preparing for a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine, but not - it seems - in parliament.

Party deputies from the Self Reliance party and the opposing Fatherland party exchanged blows outside Kiev's parliament chambers.

The combatants both spilled blood...and both now face suspension.

Their colleagues say they're hoping for a peaceful resolution, both in eastern Ukraine...and their own building.
