About a condition of crime in the first half of the year 2008 I there was a speech in Ukraine and results of activity of law-enforcement bodies during enlarged meeting of Ministry of Internal Affairs board of Ukraine with the assistance of the Minister of Internal Affairs Yury Lutsenko, representatives of the Prosecutor General's Office, the Secretariat of the President, the Verkhovna Rada and the Cabinet of Ukraine. In the opening speech the Minister made the system analysis of work of militia and outlined the priority areas of work of militia the next half-year.
Analyzing militia work on crime counteractions in the first half of the year 2008, Yury Lutsenko noticed that for half a year it isn't possible to achieve system changes, however this sufficient time to estimate - whether heads of militia of different links are capable to perform the tasks assigned to them or all of them still "play figure, percent and statistics".
In the performance the Minister addressed to heads of regional managements of the Ministry of Internal Affairs with the requirement rigidly to react to concealment of crimes or falsification of materials of criminal cases. According to him, in case of shelter of 10 criminal cases of chiefs of regional departments will oust.
- I never raised a question of disclosure percent. Me the percent, not statistics, and concrete work interests not. Let the crime will grow by 20-30 percent on statistics, but then we will see a real picture, then, at least, citizens will know that are engaged in their business. The absolute "correct" statistics isn't necessary to me, I need absolute response to statements of citizens, - Yury Lutsenko emphasized.
Yury Lutsenko also noted that the sphere of the land relations - the economy most criminalized and corrupted from all another spheres.
- Today the income from this criminalized activity is more powerful for criminals, than drugs.Militia task - despite the absence of political will to settlement of these relations, ruthlessly "to press" all bribe takers who operate the last richness of Ukraine - the earth, - the Minister of Internal Affairs noted.
According to the Minister, two-month working off of all shops and the enterprises for production of alcoholic beverages, and also ruthless fight against falsifiers will last from August 1 to October 1.
- The militia for these two months has to strike serious blow to falsifiers and that who plunders the state budget in this sphere.
The militia revealed also 33,9 thousand (+ 2,7%) crimes in the sphere of the illegal address of drugs, psychotropic substances and their analogs. 10 thousand facts of sale of drugs are documented. Nearly 1,5 thousand narcobrothels are liquidated. Nearly 2,9 tons of drugs are withdrawn from illegal circulation.
- The task in this sphere, despite of figures which also are powerful, - was noted by the Minister, - to achieve concrete results concerning neutralization of organizers of narcotraffic in each area. Whom they wouldn't be, they have to be attracted to responsibility. Without it it is impossible to overcome narcotraffic. I demand from you concrete result in the second half of the year.
On this enlarged meeting of Ministry of Internal Affairs board of Ukraine with the assistance of the Minister of Internal Affairs Yury Lutsenko there was also a chief of the Nikolaev regional Department of Internal Affairs the general - the militia major A. Naumenko.
Results of work of the Nikolaev militiamen for half a year very quite good. 6227 crimes that is 201 more, than for the similar period 2007 are registered. Thanks to the accepted actions this year 4542 crimes of the all-criminal direction, from them 1489 heavy and especially heavy are solved.
It should be noted that just a week ago on the press - A. Naumenko's conferences sounded the principles by which his subordinates have to be guided in work. And they completely coincide with requirements which were sounded today by the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.
"All the matter is that we set before ourselves the purpose - that any crime wasn't hidden. Only then citizens will know that they don't remain in private with the problems. Inhabitants will know that the authorities treat them on - human", - A. Naumenko noted.
For shelter of crimes, according to the chief militiaman of area, there has to be the most strict punishment.
