Quote: "We actively accept all statements about crimes, and later it will be possible to talk about a clearer picture and scale of the criminal activities of the occupying authorities.

If you are interested in statistics on Ukraine, the police have already checked 123,000 people; it’s like checking all residents of a small oblast centre. More than 20,000 of these are those who left the liberated territory and passed filtration measures, as well as those checked during filtration measures in liberated localities."

Details: Yenin stressed that such checks are performed "not for the sake of statistics."

"For example, 8,400 of these people were handed over to the Security Service of Ukraine for further verification activities. A considerable part of them were notified of suspicion or immediately detained by law enforcement officers. And during such events, we seize weapons, grenades, ammunition and explosives," he said.
