MOSCOW, January 15 (Itar-Tass) — Over the past year, visitors from Russia’s other regions and foreign citizens committed over 23,000 crimes in Moscow, Head of the Moscow Chief Investigative Department of Russia’s Investigative Committee – Law Lieutenant-General Vadim Yakovenko said on Tuesday.
“Unfortunately, every third crime is a felony or a grave crime,” he said.
Yakovenko said that “daily ‘turnover’ of Moscow’s nine railway stations makes hundreds of thousands, including visitors seeking for criminal revenues.”
The number of felonies and grave crimes committed in Moscow grew over the past year, he said. The Southern and Eastern administrative districts of the capital city are most criminous ones. There, most migrants from the CIS are staying, including those who stay in Moscow illegally.
“Citizens of the CIS countries are responsible for every eighth murder and every third rape. In fact the rate could be even worse, as we are using data on finished investigations only,” he said.
As for investigation of felonies, he said about detained serial criminals, many well-known cases were investigated. “Investigators worked on almost 7,500 criminal cases and they made over 18,000 pre-investigation checks.”
“I would like to stress that for the staff of Moscow investigators, which are 400, this is much work. Nevertheless, generally speaking, we have met the objectives. Jointly with colleagues from the police and FSB, we investigated about 300 murders, about 120 cases of intentional fatal infliction of grievous bodily harm and about 180 rapes,” he said.
