official representative of the Russian Orthodox Church said the facts of the arbitrariness of the Russian police officers, which have recently attracted special attention to the general public and the media and have been associated with the recent state of emergency in the Police Department, “Far” in Kazan, where the police abused detainees, who died later in hospital. Previously, a large public outcry led to the crime of the former chief of ATS ‘Tsarina’ Denis Yevsyukov, who was convicted for life for shooting people near a supermarket in southern Moscow in 2009.
According to the Chairman of the Synodal Information Department of the Moscow Patriarchate, Vladimir Legoida, these facts about the crisis in the Russian law enforcement agencies, however, the reasons lie not so much arbitrariness in the Interior of the system itself, but in the moral state of society.
“We can not exclude that the recurrence of major stories Evsukova is no more. After all, no matter how effective were the measures to reform the police, state police system will remain only a projection of the moral state of our society. The police is not at all an unfortunate exception to the rule, there are the same people as in other spheres “, – quotes the opinion of Vladimir Legoida RIA” Novosti “.
At the same time, according to the representative of the ROC, it does not remove the responsibility directly to the police chiefs who are responsible for the actions of their subordinates.
Chairman of the Synodal Information Department said that cases of police brutality should not cause mass public condemnation of all members of the MUP.
“It is important to identify specific crimes and bring the case to court decisions, not just to fuel public anger. Corrupt officials and criminals in general do not care what they say about journalists and bloggers. But the conscience of honest police officers, medical officers and hurt every time the whole of society crowd begins to denounce them with such fervor, like other social institutions we have on the order of healthier and better “- said Legoida.
According to him, in such a situation, many decent employees’ break and go, “because they have not enough strength” to deal with poor conditions of work and life “.
“There remain those who do not care. It is unlikely from this, our police, army medicine and get better, “- said the Chairman of the Synodal Information Department.
