As reported by Censor.NET, this was announced by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on his Facebook page.
The minister notes that this case illustrates establishment of direct working ties between the "normal old police officers" and the new police.
Avakov says that two drunken 16-year-old youngsters were detained by old police officers who planted a pack of drugs on them. The teenagers were said to call parents to bring money, otherwise they would go in jail as drug dealers.
According to Avakov, one of the detainees, simulating an epileptic fit, managed to get out of the car and approach a patrol police car driving by, calling for help. As a result, the old police officers were detained, with the kids having been handed over to their parents.
"We are carrying out the reform of the Interior Ministry so that even a drunken teenager could ask the police for help. Not only people have to be changed, but also the mindset of police officer. Only trusty and clean-handed police officers must remain," the minister wrote.
Later on, Avakov said that the detained officers would be dismissed, with a criminal proceeding to be opened.
