"What an unexpected gift from the Russian law enforcers who we are currently not in a regular contact with. We expect the offender to be extradited. Apparently, he's so useless that they do not need him there even as a traitor," Interfax-Ukraine quotes the Interior Minister as saying, Censor.NET reports.
The minister also said that a group of officials involved in corrupt practices during issuing registration plates and bills of sale was detained about six years ago, back in the days when the Driver Licensing Offices of the traffic police were part of the Interior Ministry.
"The chief of that traffic police directorate fled from Ukraine through Belarus the day before. He was probably warned by his colleagues," Avakov wrote.
As reported, Russian law enforcement officers detained ex-Chief of Kyiv Traffic Police Mykola Makarenko at Moscow's Domodedovo airport. The person was previously put on the international wanted list under suspicion of corruption.
