Yanukovych calling for greater control over detention facilities
Yanukovych also expressed regret that corruption still existed in the Interior Ministry.
According to him, there are cases of personal violence, as well as violations by the police.
"Such actions are destroying the authority of the state and undermining the credibility of the law," the president said.
Speaking about modernization of the Interior Ministry, Yanukovych said that it would involve not only upgrading equipment and renovating facilities, but also changing the way the police interact with citizens.
In particular, the president demanded that the Interior Ministry's leadership make every effort to increase transparency of the police, as well as to improve cooperation with the public.
He also noted that the Euro 2012 European Football Championship would be a test for the police. The president said the security of guests and participants of the championship should be guaranteed.
