Special operation or lawlessness? Police put up carnage in nightclub
The siloviki broke into the institution and beat the visitors.
During the session of the Council of Deputies of the Lipetsk region, the previously dropped issue of "police-bandit lawlessness" was raised in the town of Yelets, Lenta informs. For example, Pavel Yevgrafov, a member of the Legislation and Legal Affairs Committee, said that since early 2010, high-ranking police chiefs had been replaced in the city, and as a result, the new leaders turned out to be "worse than before."

Then, in addition to the club guard, an officer of the Yelets police, who was resting there, was beaten.
