For decision-making there are enough days. If I see any positive step from its party, I will immediately reinstate as it. I have no claims to Victor Chepak - management works normally.

According to the order of the minister, the position of the chief of Uzhgorod municipal police department which was held by Vasily Ponzel, was liquidated, and the former chief of Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Dnepropetrovsk area Vitaly Glukhoverya was appointed the chief of the Uzhgorod Municipal Department of Internal Affairs.
On the same day during a meeting with staff of the Zakarpatye regional Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs the deputy minister of internal affairs Alexander Savchenko reported that the order of the head of department is caused by an unsatisfactory criminogenic situation in the Zakarpatye area, in particular smuggling and drug traffic growth in Uzhgorod. Victor Chepak called Yury Lutsenko's order illegal. "If the order isn't cancelled, we will file a lawsuit. Besides, the chief of Uzhgorod militia Vasily Ponzel is on the sick-list, and have no right to dismiss him. To it had to offer other vacant post, and it it wasn't made", - mister Chepak told, having offered the staff of Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in protest at illegal actions of the minister to leave a hall in which there took place a meeting with the deputy minister. Staff of Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs rose from the places and left.
According to Yury Lutsenko, the decision on Vasily Ponzel's dismissal from a post was made on May 7 during Regional Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs board in the Zakarpatye area. "We decided to transfer Vasily Ponzel to a position which corresponds to his opportunities more, and he "escaped on hospital". That Uzhgorod wasn't overflowed by crime, we decided to reformat system - created the Department of Internal Affairs and asked Victor Chepak to provide candidates to a position of his chief. As it didn't make it, one of my deputies signed the order on appointment as the head of department of Vitaly Glukhoveri", - mister Lutsenko told. For carrying out office investigation concerning Victor Chepak the special commission which was headed by the deputy minister of internal affairs Vladimir Evdokimov was created.
