Moldovan politicians Sergio Tofilat and Gennady Kosovan shocked viewers with a fight during a discussion show, DPA reports.
The scene took place on a TV show.
Video posted on the Internet showed that Kosovo initially remained immobile after the incident.
The situation reportedly worsened after Tofilat insulted Kosovo during a heated debate on the political situation in Moldova.

The broadcast had to be interrupted.
A photo was later posted on Facebook showing the two men again standing quietly next to each other and shaking hands, but paramedics were still visible in the background.
“Everything is good when everything ends well,” the editorial board wrote, but also noted that such acts of violence will be punished in the future.
About a week and a half ago, Moldovans elected a new parliament in which Sandu’s pro-Western party won an absolute majority.
