Ukraine has increased the number of crimes and decreased the clearance rate. About this first Deputy Prosecutor General of Russia Yuri Sevruk told on air of TV channel "112 Ukraine" on Saturday, March 19. According to him, this is due to the police reform, the result of which can only be evaluated after its completion.

"Crime has increased over the past 5 months, and it gradually increases, and the clearance rate fell. It concerns, first of all, property crimes (theft, robbery, robbery, theft of cars), explained Sevruk. However, he denied that the level of crime has dropped to three to five percent. According to the Deputy Prosecutor General, the average clearance rate in Ukraine is 20 per cent. "The worst crime detection at us in Kiev is 10 percent," said Sevruk.

At the same time he expressed hope for gradual increasing the detection rate and reducing crime. "If the reform will be completed in the shortest possible time, the situation will improve", — said the first Deputy General Prosecutor of Ukraine.
