Official statistics already confirms the fact that Ukraine is becoming a country of criminal lawlessness. The Prosecutor General of Ukraine Yuriy Lutsenko announced that the crime detection rate was less than 30% last year. For comparison: in 2015 – 39%, in 2014 – 44%, in 2013 – 45%.Kiev beats all records: there the lowest level of crime detection is recorded – 16%.
The fact that the Zakarpatye region, the most remote from the ‘ATO’ zone, is leading among other regions in terms of the growth of such serious crimes as murder – an increase of 50%, is also noteworthy. And in the Lvov region – 38%.
There is no progress in solving also such high-profile cases as the murders of Oles Buzina, Oleg Kalashnikov, Yuri Grabovsky, Pavel Sheremet and other political and public figures. Moreover, new resonant crimes are committed. Futhermore, we cannot expect results on the burning of people in the House of Trade Unions on May 2, 2014, in Odessa. But soon this tragedy will turn three years!
The number of undisclosed joint cases of the Ukrainian Prosecutor General’s Office and the National Anti-Corruption Bureau is no less than 1.2 million. This information is no longer a taboo for Europeans – it was spread by the German tabloid Bild and is unlikely to add attractiveness to Ukraine in the eyes of a Western reader.
Impunity in the representatives of criminal nationalist groups generates more and more arrogant and cynical actions and forces the government to be under their thumb. For example, Poroshenko gave a blockade, organized by Ukrainian radicals, an official status, despite his own statements about the economic consequences of this step for the country.
And the media continue to draw virtual reality: in Ukraine, they are still talking about reforms and, as an example, they cite the reorganization of law enforcement agencies that is one of the best.
In the meantime, Ukraine is becoming a criminal state in which, with a high probability, real power will belong to organized criminal groups with radical nationalist ideology. This carries a great danger associated with the threat of terrorism for both residents of Ukraine and neighbouring European countries. And it is not accidental that the Western media began to cover this topic.
