The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine initiates increase in penalties for moonshining, prostitution and hooliganism.
The Minister of Internal Affairs Yury LUTSENKO reported about it in interview to the Segodnya newspaper (on February 17).
"Prepare offers in BP to reconsider penalties and for other types of violations. For example, for moonshining. Today this penalty - 150 hryvnias that is simply frivolous. It is necessary to increase, probably, and by 10 times. How differently to struggle with alcoholism and household alcoholism? ", - I told Yu.LUTsENKO.
According to him, in villages moonshining prospers that leads to a significant amount of serious crimes because of alcoholism, including murders.
"It is necessary to fight against it therefore I support toughening of penalties, first of all moonshine sale. If made for itself - drink, please. But don't accustom to drinking, profiting, others. At today's scanty penalties it frightens nobody and anybody seriously of a problem and isn't engaged", - added Yu.LUTsENKO.
The same, according to the minister, it is possible to tell about prostitution. "The country in the eyes becomes paradise for sex - tourism. It is especially disgusting that the pedophilia and a child pornography prospers. It is necessary to strengthen fight against it urgently. But the law provides for it from 51 to 255 hryvnias of a penalty - the ridiculous sum", - he told.
Yu.LUTsENKO considers that it is necessary to lift also penalties for hooliganism and small theft.
"I can't understand at all as it at us in parliament one figure managed to draw a line below which at theft of criminal liability simply doesn't exist. Last year it was to the 772nd hryvnia, in it already 907. Stole a cow - there is no responsibility, a mobilka - too isn't present … Thus an adminotvetstvennost - 150 hryvnias. It turns out, I stole on 900, I paid 150 … Nonsense! Therefore I initiate the law under which there would be a line in 150 hryvnias, not changing constantly", - the minister told, having added that everything that from above, is subject to criminal liability.
