Interior Minister Avakov hopes majority of Ukrainians will start to trust police

Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov hopes to achieve the 50% level of public confidence in the national police in 3-5 years.

The Minister said this on the air of 1+1 Ukrainian TV channel.

"The experience of European countries, the developed democracies as a whole, shows that the law enforcement system is stable in the countries, where the police enjoy the trust of more than 50% of the population. I very much hope that we will have such a system in the next 3-5 years," Avakov said.
