This was stated by Avakov on his Facebook page, Censor.NET informs.
"Those whom I trust in the Donetsk and Luhansk region police are the ones who really proved themselves in difficult situations. When Kramatorsk police department was being captured, Vitalii brought out seven sacks of weapons and hid them. Despite being tortured at the hands of Girkin's cronies in the basement of the Security Service in Sloviansk he did not give up the location of the weapons. He came out of the captivity with broken fingers, barely alive…" Avakov said.
He noted that yesterday he appointed him the chief of the Kramatorsk city police department. "Kramatorsk police was reinforced by officers from Sumy and Volyn. The detachment is strong. We are starting certification of the "old" policemen. Something tells me that 80% of the slots will be filled by new people - graduates and officers who came to the service from combat forces of the Ministry," he added.
