In Ukraine, with the coming into power of a new team began to meet frequently reports of arrests of some assets and the confiscation of something (to be understood, acquired "hard work") in the fight against corruption and smuggling.
The most recent example - seized 2.5 tons of amber in the Rivne region. On which, however, claims the company has "Ukryantar." They said that the entire "solar stone" them, and not contraband. Interior Minister Arsen Avakov is convinced that in this way the company is trying to retroactively legalize a large shipment of amber, the amount of which exceeds official production figures of the company for all the years of its existence. The Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that the stone will be auctioned and the money will go to the state treasury.
About a month ago, Ukraine from the media and from the mouth of the president learned that we have a problem of illegal extraction of amber. That there is a whole succinic mafia which trades on the territory of several areas - Rivne, Zhytomyr and Volyn.
Then the president gave an indication of security officials to fight illegal fishing that empties the state coffers and destroys nature. Began to appear about the detention there, here a valuable cargo. According to official reports, the border guards, from the beginning of the year they detained 800 kg of smuggled amber.
The treasury is suffering greatly because of the order of 90% (!) Amber is mined illegally. This is an average of 30 tons annually. A total reserves of amber is estimated at 1,500 tons. On the world's only stock exchange in the Polish Gdansk amber for 1 gram of raw yellow yield treasures from 3 to 8 euros. Thus, we get a very impressive amount with a lot of zeros, which misses the budget of Ukraine.
In our country, which is now in a difficult situation when the best people are fighting at the front, and many, taking from him the last help to the army and the settlers, like the behavior of young "people" looks beyond reality.
There are some emotions that I will not sound. Who are these people educated, and most importantly how?
This video has looked the whole country and I very much hope that the police will give it due recognition.
And we, as a society, must give such facts their moral evaluation.
This in our country and in our city should not be!
A few years ago it was difficult to imagine the phrase "alignment with the police." This phrase could only be used except in a negative context.
Today, thanks to Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, the old militia, step by step, is transformed into a new police, which has a new, attractive face.
Contrary to the many skeptics who doubted the success of the reforms, the minister Avakov and his team succeeded in a short time to demonstrate significant progress of reform. New police earned in Kiev, and soon it will begin to operate in other major cities.
July 2 held a meeting of the working group on issues related to decommunisation in Kharkov.
During the committee meeting on the results of the inventory carried out by the city authorities, in accordance with the law on de-communization, renaming the city to be 163 streets and squares, 7 districts. In addition, members of the committee will study the issue of demolition of monuments in the city of 6 representatives of the Communist Party and Soviet politicians. Also controversial are still another 77 names of streets and squares of Kharkov.
As a member of the city council, which represents the interests of the inhabitants of the city, I think that this question, we must seriously and responsibly.
Finally, there was a truly historic event, which have been waiting for the people of Ukraine.
The bill в–2822 of the National Police adopted. In the second reading and in general it supported 278 deputies.
Now, with the adoption of the law, there were legal grounds in order to fully engage not cosmetic, but a real, major change in the police in Ukraine.
Old police disappearing forever.
I think that to regret it is unlikely that anyone would be. In its place comes a very different, in fact, in spirit and even the appearance of the structure. On the other objectives, other objectives and other principles. Chief of which are fond of saying interior minister "to serve and protect."
It is worth noting that only because of the energy Arsen Avakov this process managed to break the deadlock and lead to the logical result. It was he who became the head of the structure, which had the lowest trust rating among the population, not afraid of responsibility and undertook to reform something with which, apparently, nothing can be done.
