Russian president dismisses Moscow police chief

Apr 28, 2009 | Posted by: coolncrazy | Full story: en.rian.ru

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev dismissed on Tuesday the chief of the Moscow police, Col.-Gen. Vladimir Pronin, following a shooting involving an off-duty officer in a supermarket earlier this week.

Medvedev earlier sacked police Maj.-Gen. Viktor Ageyev, who headed the police department in Moscow's Southern Administrative District, where one of his senior officers, Tsaritsino district police chief Denis Yevsyukov, shot three people dead early on Monday.

There are dozens of much more popular newspapers than Kommersant. So yes, he owns almost nothing in Russian Media. To say he owns majority of it is the same as to say Lebedev owns majority of British media with his Evening Standard. I mean to say that is a little stupid...:)

You are right. State owned Gazprom Media owns alot more. Lukoil owns TV-6 in Russia. Funny how Boris Berezovsky used to own that.

I never heard that he's friend of Putin (did they even met?). And do you mean UK is ruled by Russians just because Lebedev owns Evening Standard? Why do you like to look so stupid?

I hope at least that is a joke. This English-language newspapers is for foreigners and students who use it on English lessons. And nothing more. So it's even much less serious than Kommersant...

Vladimir Putin awarded Alisher Usmanov with a Medal of Honour in 2004. Putin got 40% share of the Mapo Bank from Alisher Usmanov.

It would seem to me that a better line of authority and accountability should be in place at the local level to deal with such things..more de-centralized power. For the President of the Russian Federation to have to take time away from national affairs to handle a local problem is questionable..But, the decision seems to be good..Many abuses of the cities police forces are quite common..corruption and abuse of power, and protection by higher authority to cover up or protect those officers is their normal way of doing business..Leadership, responsibility, and example starts at the top...a complete house cleaning is in order of all cities police departments in russia..
I agree entirely, but just where are the decent, honest, principled, hard working and law abiding replacements supposed to come from? England perhaps?

Now, that is the real problem..what you post is correct..a dictatorship that doesn't have faith in it's own people only supports those who support the regime..and that, encourages such abuse and superiority over the masses..the entire mindset has to change, and unfortunately, the russian mindset is set in it's way and manner..of course, Putin can always turn to NATO to provide fair, honest, and accountable police operations and training..Ha!

And what did he do, the next one will not do? Without drastic 'cleaning' campaign situation will not change. Saking one person will not change much at all.
I agree with you, but maybe it is only a beginning of the Big Cleaning.

Yes, we need Great Purge campaign inside the Ministry of Internal Affairs at all levels. Or maybe this criminal organization should be disbanded and replaced by completely new organization with much higher requirements to the people who will work in it. Situation when Nazi followers and serial killers are named (by Pronin) as "our best operatives" is something completely clinical.

I guess they need to screen people before they make them police officers, right now its almost like they take anyone. Secondly - pention. If you have a good record by the age of 45 you can retire and have 500k++ pention its well worth it.

STA you are being naive. Its not a mindset, Russian police is corrupt but as long as officers make $300 dollars a month you cant expect them to be angels - they have so many opportunities to double triple quadriple their sallaries, that temptation is too high. Untill they get decent pay you cant expect them to be fair and honest Im afraid there is no simple solution.
