The Directorate of National police in Kiev is counting on a slowdown in the growth of crime in the year 2017. About it in interview to «the Ukrainian news» said the Deputy head of the National police — the chief of the Department of national police in Kiev Andrey Krishchenko.

According to him, at the moment recorded crime is on the increase in Kiev.
«Factors known to all is the economic situation in the country, because the increase comes at the expense of such categories of crimes such as theft and robbery. It is those positions for which growth is observed. If we take a serious and heinous crimes, particularly murder, serious bodily injury, then the segment growth. Their detection rate has reached almost 80%. In General, growth is associated with street crime. There is some growth associated with the situation on the roads, we are talking about the accident with the dead,» kryschenko said.
He noted that the second reason for the growth of crime — the inner migration of the population.
