Interior Ministry refutes information on personnel increase in "Berkut" forces

The information on personnel increase of “Berkut” Special Forces is untrue, deputy interior minister Viktor Ratushniak told a briefing, a ForUm’s correspondent reports.

The official noted that more urgent question concerns resuming financing of undermanned law enforcement bodies.

“Our law enforcement bodies are undermanned by 14%, including lack of district police officers (1500 men), patrol officers, field officers,” he specified. 

Speaking about a wage increase for special forces, promised recently by Mykola Azarov, Ratushniak noted that “if the promise has been made, it will be most probably fulfilled”.
