The chief of the national police said that the majority of “thieves in law” were not Ukrainian; they are ethnic Georgians, Russians, etc.
“Ukrainians (among them – ed.) Less than 6%. And, as a rule, thieves do not have Ukrainian passports,” he said.
Klimenko explained that “today we see that all criminal groups work for a thief in law”.
“In addition, money from the activities of each criminal group is deposited with a thief.” Therefore, these people have the opportunity to influence the socio-political and socio-economic state. In addition, they influence mass events, can destabilize the situation both in a separate region for these funds and in the future in the state as a whole, “said the head of the NPU.

According to him, documenting a thief is a difficult long-term intellectual process conducted by professionals.
“We say we will document and document these groups” from below “and go to the” thief in law “, not” from above “to call the person he is the head of an organized criminal community, and move from him to other groups. If we reveal a criminal group, we come later to criminal authority, then we come to the “spectator”, the “polite”, and then only the “thief of laws”. It is technically, intellectually very difficult to prove, “he said.
He said that beforehand, the police had documented, in particular, last year and this year, 11 of these people, some of whom were in pre-trial detention centers.
