The MP was attacked after he refused to denounce Vladimir Putin as Russia continues to move troops to the border for a possible invasion.

Butusov was filmed approaching his fellow guest and punching him in the face, with former Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and ex-President Petro Poroshenko watching.

Bloody, Shufrich stood up to fight back as they both fell to the ground in a vicious fight before Butusov hit his opponent in the head.

Amid calls to stop their aggressive behavior, they were eventually separated before political discussion resumed.

The fight broke out after Shufrich was asked if Putin was a murderer and a criminal.

He refused to answer and said: “Let the authorities of Ukraine deal with this.”

Former President Poroshenko was quick to criticize him for his comments, replying, “Here in the studio, a Russian agent.”

The spat came as Ukrainian rebels began streaming into Russia after pro-Kremlin rebels ordered a mass evacuation of 500,000 people from occupied territories on the country’s borders.

Rebel chief Denis Pushilin warned that it was now too dangerous for his men to stay, following claims that Ukrainian forces were trying to launch a doomsday attack on a chlorine plant.

Pushlin said the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people from the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic must begin immediately, starting with women and children.

He urged people to leave and cross the border into Russia.

Simultaneously, there were unconfirmed reports of a car bomb explosion in Donetsk, as the neighboring rebel region of the Lugansk People’s Republic also ordered an evacuation.

The danger of a potential attack on the chlorine plant was heightened by insurgents who claimed that explosions there could release poisonous gas, killing thousands of people.

But the evacuation order was given, despite the absence of explosions on the spot and the release of gas.

There are fears that these events could be a pretext for the war that Vladimir Putin has been waiting for to send his army of 200,000 troops across the border to invade.
