"This is punishment and attempt to discredit new police," - Interior Minister Avakov on patrol officer Oliinyk's apprehension

Apprehension and prosecution of police officer Serhii Oliinyk, who shot dead the passenger of the BMW during the night pursuit in Kyiv in early February, is punishment and attempt to discredit the new police.

This was announced by Interior Minister Arsen Avakov on his Facebook page, Censor.NET reports.

He called the prosecution's decision about apprehending and prosecuting Oliinyk "a punishment."

"It is much more important for them to anywise discredit the new police, which is an example of reforms and changes...," Avakov wrote in an overly emotional post. "They want everyone to know that their authority - the authority of the old system - is much greater than that of the new one."
