By its results 7 from them were dismissed from bodies, 20 - are transferred to positions with a smaller volume of powers in other divisions, 15 received disciplinary punishments. Then replaced GUMVD management in the Kharkov area.

In particular, 9 employees of these divisions (mainly - an administrative board) who promoted drug dealers were established.
2 from them were dismissed from law-enforcement bodies (were restored on service on decision of the courts later), 7 - are dismissed from positions, are lowered or transferred to other divisions.
According to the head a press - services Ministries of Internal Affairs, the process analysis of "personnel cleaning" divisions of fight against the illegal address of drugs of the Kharkov militia showed that relevant requirements of the Minister of Internal Affairs were fulfilled not in full.
Therefore in the Ministry of Internal Affairs I started over again to arrive operational information about participation of workers of BNON of Kharkov in illegal operations with drugs.
Therefore employees of SBU detained 2 employees of the Kharkov militia on suspicion in participation in the illegal address of drugs (one of them was dismissed earlier from law-enforcement bodies, but it was again appointed in BNON division later). Other participants of group of drug dealers (2 from them earlier too left militia for "negative motives"), who disappear now from bodies are established also.
