Chervakova said she blamed local police and prosecutor's office for inactivity, which encourages local 'titushkas' to terrorize the town with 15,000 population. She asked the head of the National Police and interior minister to control the investigation and deal with those officials who cover illegal operations and violence there.

Prosecutor General Yurii Lutsenko commented on Chervakova's status: "I have taken it under control."
