Krasnodar, 28 July. Our today’s interviewee is Andrei Maslov, Head of the Investigating Administration of the Krasnodar regional branch of the Russian Investigation Committee. 

Q.: What is the dynamics of crime committing and solution efficiency? 

A.: The total number of registered crimes rose by 2%, but that of grievous and extremely grievous crimes increased nearly by 10%. The share of grievous and extremely grievous crimes is 26% of the total number of crimes. This year, the crime solution efficiency grew by 4%. The number of murders remained at the previous year’s level – 117. All persons that committed them were identified. The number of bodily injuries that caused the death of the victim reduced by 13 and equalled to 46. Forty-one rapes were committed this year (36 in 2021), and 112 tax offences (124 last year). 

Q.: What is the current situation with investigation of corruption crimes? 

A.: At present, we receive most information about such offences from regional FSB and police authorities; some crimes are revealed by investigators of our regional Investigative Administration; and only 8% are reported by citizens. We always publicize all stages of such investigations in the mass media. Our aim is not so much to frighten the population by possible punishments as to create such system of values that will prevent people from committing corruption crimes because they will treat it as fully unacceptable. The biggest share of such crimes fell on briberies – 149 cases. Fifty officers of various law enforcement bodies, nine officials of local self-governments, including two deputies, and 21 executives of the Ministry of Public Health, Ministry of Education and Science, and Federal State Agency for Health and Consumer Rights acted as defendants in the corruption cases brought to courts. Besides, 11 employees of non-commercial organizations with state and municipal participation were brought to criminal liability – mainly, as mediators. 

Q.: How is the Investigating Administration’s staff being arrayed at present?

 A.: We have never experienced staff shortages. All candidates for the vacancies undergo scrupulous preliminary selection by our HR Department. It includes interviewing, professional testing, and checking for the data that may prevent hiring the candidate. The applicants are also checked on lie detector. Shortly before the appointment, I hold a personal interview with each candidate to try to understand his or her motivation for work and working potential. An investigation officer must be sensitive to other people, show empathy with their problems, but at the same time be able to act rigorously in accordance with the language of law.
