The Minister said this to the personnel of the state traffic police in Mykolaiv, where he came after a video evidence of bribery by traffic police in Kobleve had been made public in social networks, Censor.NET informs citing Ukrinform.
"I'm tired of looking into shameless eyes of traffic inspectors. The whole staff of the Mykolaiv region traffic police will be discharged. On Thursday you have to come to the police office to determine the order of certification. Everyone who wants to work in the new police must prove it," Avakov said.
He said that the contest starts on July 27. Until then, the patrolling will be carried out by the Myrotvorets special unit brought by Avakov, together with Mykolaiv and Kobra special units.
As reported earlier, a social activist published a scandalous video in the Internet, which video showed inspectors at the Kobleve traffic control post stopping cargo vehicles, verifying documents and receiving money from drivers.
Following this, a service check was initiated by administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Department in the Mykolaiv region.
