Dnipro, Kharkiv, Zaporizhia and Odessa – four of the most troubled regions in the number of offences.
This was stated by the Chairman of the National police Sergey Knyazev in an interview Gazeta.ua
“It affects the economic and social factors. In particular, what is it – industrial regions. But if you take the Kharkiv region, the Kharkiv city and region are very different. A large concentration of urban population increases the number of crimes.
Go to the center of Ukraine, to the West. Farther away, the less crimes are committed. It depends probably not from law enforcement system, and the mentality of society. The people there on Sunday go to Church. And the farther West the more. If family values dominate over the other, then the offenses are less”, – he explained.
The lowest crime rate in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions, said Knyazev.
“In most cases occur situational: bad – was stolen. Question in other. In the Donbas a lot of police officers and offenders uncomfortable,” he said.
