The strange action of the MEP, took out a pigeon from his pocket during the speech

European Parliament

Slovak MEP, Miroslav Radacosky, did a strange thing during his speech in the European Parliament.

He at one point took out a white dove from his pocket, as a message for world peace. He was keeping the pigeon in the inner pocket of his suit and released it in the hall in front of the audience.

He said he wanted peace all over the world.

"I would like to release this dove as a symbol of peace, to symbolize that Europe needs peace. Let's let this dove unite us all", he said.

But this action of the MEP did not pass without noise. Some representatives called this an inappropriate gesture as it "used a live bird to express a political point of view".
