"The year's work of the criminal police of Ukraine. For those prone to analyze rather than go hysteric. The information marked with yellow and red is thought-provoking, isn't it?" Avakov wrote, adding that the criminal police is part of the National Police of Ukraine.
The yellow circles indicate percentage of cases solved by the criminal police, and the red ones show the percentage of criminals subsequently arrested by courts.
