that last week at an enlarged meeting of the Interior Ministry's senior officials it was claimed that investigators of the Main
Investigation Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs probing
high-profile corruption crimes will get UAH30,000.
to the today's decision of the Government, 63 investigators will receive UAH30,000 salaries - to take the first step in a real fight
against corruption in the MIA system," he stressed.
corruption means a deregulation and reduction of the powers of the authorities.
Combating corruption means a proper criminal investigation, bringing all the
cases to justice and accountability, including prison terms defined by the
Criminal Code. Combating corruption means a general economic situation,
including wages, salaries, social, financial and medical support for those who are
fighting against the mafia," Arseniy Yatsenyuk underlined.
