President Victor Yushcheno on Dec. 9 accused the chiefs of Ukraine's law-enforcement agencies of involvement in corrupt activities during a meeting with the chiefs of the nation's Interior Ministry, Justice Ministry, State Customs Service and Prosecutor General's Office.
"Let me tell you that you are mediocre ministers and agency heads. You have denegrated the nation with your work and incompetence," said Yushchenko. He added that the heads of the country's agencies are all participants what he called "this awful process."
Interior Ministry Yuri Lutsenko, who has pledged allegience to Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko in the upcoming presidential poll, left the meeting after the president's remarks.
