A new National police should demonstrate "another quality in terms of attitude towards a citizen of Ukraine - respect, responsibility, support and protection, Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said this at a visiting session at the National Academy of Internal Affairs of Ukraine on Saturday, April 4.

The Prime Minister has noted that bills on reform of the Interior Ministry provide clear rights and powers of a police officer, "But the law has another very important thing – a police officer that meets the standards of integrity, responsibility and professionalism should get appropriate respect from the people of Ukraine."

"Protection of a human being in a form that serves the Ukrainian people - it is also the philosophy of this bill, including social, medical and financial protection," Arseniy Yatsenyuk emphasized.

The PM has noted that the proposed by the Government reform provides for enrolment to the ranks of the National police only through competition: "The National police should consist of the Ukrainian youth who are brought up in a different way, has a different vision, speak foreign languages, are just not of the same kidney."

The National police should demonstrate "another quality in terms of attitude towards a citizen of Ukraine - respect, responsibility, support and protection", "This is what Ukraine needs today."
