Interview with Police Lieutenant General Vladimir Kolokoltsev

Quote:
Vladimir Kolokoltsev: "If we demand that citizens observe law then we should be impeccable ourselves". (Interview in Izvestia)


In an interview to an Izvestia journalist, Minister of the Interior Police Lieutenant General Vladimir Kolokoltsev of Russia shared his views on the priority objectives of his activities as the new minister, as well as further improvement of the performance of the Internal Affairs bodies.


- When you were offered the office of Minister of the Interior, did you have any doubts as to whether to accept the offer or not?
- Doubt is not the right word for that. I thoroughly considered the offer - that is true. Yet it was not about doubts for I have never walked in other people's shadow since my time as a teenager. If the work has to be done and I am instructed to do it, then I will do it by all means.

- What do you believe is currently the major police issue?
- The major challenge is of course people's trust. No matter what good progress we might make and what useful reforms we might conduct, just any crime or human rights violation on the part of policemen will send our achievements down the drain. People who regard police as an enforcement body in any case start getting afraid of them, which leads to the loss of trust. No professional authority will be efficient without public trust proper.

Yeltsin monument paint-bombed

Quote:
Yeltsin monument paint-bombed, Communists approve

Unidentified vandals have thrown paint and broken the lettering on the monument to Boris Yeltsin in Yekaterinburg.
Officials from the Yeltsin Center have already voiced their indignation over the incident, but local communists said they were ready to support the vandals.

A police detail only discovered in the morning that the 10-meter monument was covered with paint from top to bottom. According to the local police press service, the incident itself must have taken place between 3am and 8am local time.

WWII Veteran Shoots Thief With 1916 Pistol

Quote:
A World War II veteran wounded a man who broke into his house in Ukraine’s Nikolayev Region with a revolver made in 1916, local media reported on Tuesday.
The suspected burglar, who was hospitalized with two gunshot wounds, gave police the name and address of his alleged shooter, but the latter appeared to have an alibi.
The police continued looking for the shooter in the small village, eventually arriving at the house of the 88-year-old war veteran.

Don’t Drink Kefir and Drive

Quote:
MOSCOW — Russia’s top health official said Monday that drinking and driving don’t mix — even when the drink in question is kefir, a fermented milk beverage containing less than one percent alcohol.
The comments by Gennady Onishchenko, Russia’s chief sanitary inspector, sparked an outburst of criticism and ridicule on Twitter. Dozens of users circulated a picture of a glass of kefir with the caption, “Kefir? NO! I’m driving!”
Officials have scrambling to condemn drunk driving since an intoxicated driver in September killed seven people, including five orphans, after crashing into a bus stop in Moscow. Some lawmakers have proposed life sentences for drivers who cause death while under the influence. One has said drunk driving is a bigger threat than terrorism.

Drunk Police Official Kills Pedestrian in St. Petersburg

Quote:
The head of a district office of criminal police in St. Petersburg ran over and killed a pedestrian early on Saturday while driving a car under the influence of alcohol, the Interior Ministry said.
Medical examination at the site of the incident revealed that Maj. Sergei Kudryavtsev had a “medium degree” of intoxication when his Honda Accord sedan hit a pedestrian who was running across the street outside of the designated pedestrian crossing.
The pedestrian, whose identity has not been established, died at the scene from sustained wounds.

Incorruptible cops probably did the job of presenting valid evidence which led to the life sentence. Putin cannot handle massive corruption in the police department. Somebody must help him. Nonetheless, they were able to pin this guy.

TV Anchor Shot Dead in Nalchik

Quote:
MOSCOW — A popular local TV anchor was shot dead in the North Caucasus republic of Kabardino-Balkaria late Wednesday in what investigators and observers interpreted as a warning to the journalist's bosses not to give news coverage to authorities' fight against local rebels.
In a separate attack, a deputy transportation minister for the republic was hospitalized in Nalchik on Thursday morning after his car exploded as he was leaving his home. The official, Vladislav Dyadchenko, was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
Investigators said they suspect the killing of Kazbek Gekkiyev, 28, an anchor for the evening news show Vesti KBR, was linked to his job.
Vesti KBR is the local edition of a national news show of the same name, aired on Rossia 1 television, which is broadcast by the state-run VGTRK media holding.

Police Uncover Massive Counterfeiting Network

Quote:
MOSCOW — The Interior Ministry and the Federal Security Service detained members of a huge counterfeiting ring responsible for producing and distributing over 40 million rubles ($1.3 million) a month in counterfeit bills, police said Tuesday.
Apart from Russian rubles, the counterfeiters also produced fake U.S. dollars and euros — a currency that counterfeiters had never before attempted to forge in Russia.
The detentions marked the end of a security operation that began in July in Dagestan and was carried out by the Interior Ministry’s main directorate for economic security in conjunction with police from the Southern Federal District, the North Caucasus Federal District and the Moscow region.

Russian Police Manga

Quote:

MOSCOW, December 27 (RIA Novosti) – Japanese graphic arts are about the last thing that Russian police is associated with, but in a sudden bid to be hip, the force put out an instruction on how to avoid fires and pedophiles done manga-style.


The instructional manual, available on the Interior Ministry’s website since Thursday, contains 24 pages of advice, as well as games for preschoolers.
The book covers some pretty tense situations, including on how to spray an attacker with aerosol should a can be at hand and how to arrange clothes when walking down a dark alley (jewelry should be removed and the skirt hitched down). Emergency numbers and guidelines on how to cross the street are also included.
