As far as his staffing issues 140 detectives and 150 cases seems pretty light to me, LAPD detectives depending on what desk you work have more than one case to investigate! This is the legacy of Soviet bureaucracy, far too many people standing around and doing very little. Sounds a lot like excuses to me.

Good that he is speaking out.

The more people who speak out the better - warn the west what is going on, and keep the pressure on the corrupt oligarchs, for years if necessary.

Most of these corrupt oligarchs sympathise with Russia and would sell out Ukraine to the Kremlin if the price was right.
