MOSCOW, August 18 (Itar-Tass) —— The crime solution rate in the Central Federal District is lower than in any other federal district of Russia, Prosecutor-General Yuri Chaika said at a business meeting of CFD prosecutors. The results of the first half of the year were the main issue on the agenda.
“The crime solution rate keeps falling, it is the lowest among the federal districts. In the first half of the year there remained unsolved 45 percent of criminal abuses. In Moscow there are still unsolved two-thirds of the crimes, in the Yaroslavl Region, 46 percent, and in the Tver Region, 57 percent,” Chaika said.
Struggle against corruption leaves much to be desired and half of the prosecutors’ measures reached nowhere.
“In the six months violations in the sphere of combating corruption resulted in 3,200 motions, but only 1.8 thousand officers were disciplined,” Chaika said.
In addition, he said that in central Russia too few criminal cases over instances of corruption were opened at the prosecutors’ requests.
“Over the six months 119 criminal cases were opened in the whole CFD. But more than half of them were in the Kostroma, Oryol and Moscow regions,” Chaika stated. The results of prosecutors’ activities in other regions, he said, were “not impressive”. “Not a single case has been opened in the Ryazan Region. In the Moscow Region, only one,” the prosecutor-general said.
