Desc :The head of Ukraineâ€™s state TV company has been attacked by at least three MPs from the far-right Svoboda party and forced to resign.
Members of Svoboda barged their way into the offices of Aleksandr Panteleymonov, the acting president of the National Television Company of Ukraine on Tuesday night.
They were angry that public broadcaster, First National Channel, had broadcast the Russian Parliament signing a treaty with Crimea on Tuesday.
Yelling and beating Panteleymonov around the head, the men accused him of serving Putin, while there were Ukrainians â€œdying at the hands of Russian occupiersâ€ and called him â€œMoscow trash.â€
They then forced him to sign a letter of resignation.
Ironically, one of the men involved in the assault was the deputy head of Ukraineâ€™s committee on freedom of speech.
Members of the Svoboda party filmed the attack and then posted it online.(euronews)
