IRKUTSK, September 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The number of registered crimes has reduced in Russia by almost nine percent since the beginning of the year, Russian Interior Minister Rashid Nurgaliyev said at a meeting with the personnel of the Main Department of the Russian Interior Ministry for the Irkutsk Region on Thursday.
“Over eight months of this year, the number of registered crimes dropped by 8.8 percent,” the minister said.
According to him, such a positive tendency is recorded during the last five or six years due to the measures on preventing crimes.
“Today’s statistics is not accidental, but natural,” Nurgaliyev stressed recalling that the Interior Ministry began to revive the system of preventing crimes in 2005.
“Undoubtedly, preventive measures are not adequate yet to the operational situation, however, the first results testify to the fact that the vector of preventing crimes was chosen by us correctly,” the interior minister stressed.
