Army will patrol the streets of Mykolaiv region along with the police. Also, Military Service Law Enforcements may intervene in case if the crime is committed right in front of them. Adviser to the President Yuriy Biryukov wrote this on Facebook.
"There will be joint patrols: Military Sercice plus patrol police, Armed Forces may intervene in case of crime committed at the very moment", added Biryukov.
"We understand the seriousness of the crime situation in the city. We can see the consequences. We feel the danger. At the same time, we recognize the fact that the shortage of personnel in the police prevents full investigation of the most high-profile cases. This criminal situation does not suit anyone, because the 10% disclosure prosecutions is not a guarantee of peace on the city streets", Mykolaiv official Volodymyr Kyrylenko said.
"We are initiating an appeal to all the military authorities with a request for the involvement of military duty in the streets. We will ask to take Mykolaiv region and the city under special control", he stressed.
