Avakov claimed on his Facebook page that almost 20,000 policemen have deserted and discredited themselves in east Ukraine and have to be replaced.
Avakov also said his other concern is the need to replace those police who have failed lie detector tests.
Meanwhile, Moscow’s Basmanny District Court arrested Avakov in absentia in early July on suspicion of his complicity in using “prohibited means and methods of conducting a war” in east Ukraine.
Russia also arrested in absentia Ukrainian billionaire Igor Kolomoiskiy who is actively financing the so-called “anti-terrorist operation” of the Ukrainian army against local self-defense militia in east Ukraine.
