The Ministry of Internal Affairs clamps down on ethnic crime groups. On Thursday, about 100 members of ethnic criminal communities were detained in Balashikha, Moscow region. Today it became known that the Moscow Criminal Investigation will have a new department for combating organized crime groups from Central Asia.
A source in law enforcement agencies told to Rosbalt that all of today’s Moscow Criminal Investigation Department structure transformations are aimed at enhancing the work of the operations staff to combat criminal elements from Central Asia.
At the moment, there is only a general ethnic department at the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, the employees of which are fighting criminality with both Asian and Caucasian roots.
However, the incident at the Khovanskoye cemetery has shown that a general department is not enough. It is lacking employees for dealing with criminal elements from the regions of the Caucasus and Central Asia.
Thus, due to the structural changes, there will be a separate Central Asia and Caucasus department, and the total number of operations officers will increase.
