MOSCOW, June 4 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow policemen must be faultless and serve as an example for their colleagues in other regions, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said when presenting a new Moscow police chief, Anatoly Yakunin, on Monday, June 4.
“Today I am handing over my native, shall I say, Moscow police team to a new head. I have no doubt that he will do his best to ensure that law and order prevail in the streets of our city,” Kolokoltsev said.
“Remember that you serve in one of the biggest megalopolises of the world, which our capital is. And you are always in public sight and therefore must be faultless. You draw the closest attention, other regions try to be like you,” the minister said.
He described the new Moscowpolice chief as an honest, decent, competent and fair leader who has serve in different positions from beat policeman to Moscow police chief.
“Anatoly Ivanovich [Yakunin] is known for his openness and fair approach, he always protects his subordinates but will always be uncompromising with regard to those who break the law,” Kolokoltsev said.
