For a country waging the war, Ukrainian laws are too loyal to fight organized crime. Strick laws helped to curb crime in early 90s, Mykola Holomsha said, speaking on ZIK TV July 20.
“At the climax of crime in the 90s, special laws were passed. We could make preventive arrests to deal with the crime rate,” he said.
He praised the present head of the national police, Serhij Knyazev, for advocating more power to the police.
Special crack troops with increased powers are to be created, monitored jointly by the national police, SBU, National Guard and Border Guards, he said. It will be a temporary measure until the war continues.
