 Starting Tomorrow Police Will Conduct Raids on Currency Speculators

Tomorrow special units of Ukrainian police will raid areas of high concentration of currency speculators, said a source in the Interior Affairs Ministry.

TSN reports that that police will conduct raids in open air points as well as centers of illegal exchange operations posing as legitimate businesses. These will be pilot raids carried out in an atmosphere of maximum secrecy. The specific list of cities where they are to be conducted will be drawn by heads of the project late evening the day before.

The only fact known for certain is that first raid will be held in one of the largest cities with population over a million people. In addition, a source in the police suggested that the main motive of the special operation is rumors that the fight against currency speculation will be transferred from the Ministry of Internal Affairs to the Tax Administration. Tomorrow police raid will try to prove its effectiveness in combating economic crimes.
