Baloha: "To fasten blue and yellow flags on patrol vehicles is not to reform the Ministry of Internal Affairs"
To do nothing and allow saboteurs to capture state institutions, or already now, in parallel with the current Ministry of Internal Affairs, to start forming new Ukrainian police - this is how the non-factional MP, our countryman Victor Baloha sees the way out of the tense situation in which the police do not do their job. Moreover, it is by choosing the second option that we can count on significant financial and organizational support from the West, the politician believes.
"What needs to be done for that:
1. The Parliament must adopt the law on police. It will not take much, everything has already been done before, we just need to copy the Georgian legislation.
But that does not mean immediate elimination of the MIA, because then a vacuum will form in the law enforcement system. This means forming a parallel structure.
2. To appoint a new head of the police, in other words - another interior minister, who would start to form a new structure, with new leaders by progressive standards.
They should start from the East and South. Deadline - a year from now. During this period, a new Ministry of Internal Affairs should be formed, and the old one should be eliminated. By that time, the two structures should work in parallel.
3. To employ new personnel. Believe me, there is a choice. Among 45 million of Ukrainians, there are definitely one million and even more decent people. They can start with those patriots of the Maidan, who are now abandoned. Among them, there are lawyers and former military officers, but most importantly, all of them have morals.
The current police officers should undergo a complete re-certification. Those who will pass it (which is five percent, maybe ten), will be employed to new jobs in the police. All the rest are not poor people, or have enough connections to find a new job. At least, the country should not worry for their employment" - Victor Baloha wrote on his page in Facebook.
Of course, this is a difficult challenge, "But to raise your hands where the police are not doing their job is not the way out. Just like to fasten blue and yellow flags on patrol cars is not to reform the Ministry of Internal Affairs", - the Transcarpathian believes.
