The main regional police department did not confirm the information to the journalists, saying that "no one leaves" the department.

300 employees of the MIA Directorate for Nizhny Novgorod region filed a report on dismissal, the newspaper said, citing its own sources in the department. According to journalists, law enforcers began to resign in large numbers due to fear that the retirement age for police officers will be raised for 5 years.

Those wishing to leave the ranks of policemen have created a line in the HR department of the regional MIA Directorate. Due to the influx of those wishing to submit a report, the personnel staff does not have time to prepare the necessary documentation on time.

Despite the fact that it is not yet known whether the increase in the retirement age will influence siloviki, in particular, the MIA, some policemen have already decided to play it safe and quit before the amendments come into force.

By law, the policemen retire after 20 years of service. In a personal conversation, the policemen shared with journalists that retiring 5 years later is sometimes "equated with death," since the work is associated with a constant risk to life and health.

The main regional police department did not confirm the information to the journalists, saying that "no one leaves" the department.

Recall, pension legislation should change from January next year. The age of retirement will increase to 65 years for men and to 63 years for women.
