MOSCOW, December 04, 20:12 /ITAR-TASS/. Two Duma deputies, Aleksei Zhuravlyov and Adam Delimkhanov, have made it up after fist- fighting in the Duma corridor on Tuesday, both told journalists on Wednesday.
"The conflict has been settled. We have made it up and will work together in future," Aleksei Zhuravlyov said. It was a decision worthy of a man," Zhuravlyov said. "We regret the incident," he added.
"The conflict is settled," Zelimkhanov confirmed. Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin has been informed about the reconciliation. Earlier, Naryshkin had criticized both, saying "regardless of the motive behind the incident, political parties the lawmakers represent or their merits, it is my firm belief that it was unworthy of a deputy's status."
The two MPs quarreled on Tuesday over an inquiry lodged by MP Zhuravlyov with the Prosecutor's office back in September. Zhuravlyov claims that the establishment of a monument to Chechen women in Gudermes should be checked for elements of extremism. Delimkhanov challenged his opponent for slander and hit him in the face. Zhuravlyov fought back. An onlooker said that Delimkhanov had a gun in his clothes which fell out during the clash.
Sergei Neverov, Secretary General of the General Council of the United Russia party to which both deputies involved in the brawl belong, told reporters on Wednesday said the party did not discuss the incident, adding that in his opinion it was their own affair. The two deputies should settle the conflict between themselves, Neverov said. "An ability to reach a compromise and settle conflicts in a civilized way is important for a deputy or a politician," he stressed.
