The Russian government fired a senior police general on Tuesday for beating up two of his subordinates while drunk, the Kremlin website said.

Russian investigators launched criminal proceedings against Major General Alexander Ivanin in connection with the incident in April this year, in which he beat up two regional commanders following a drinking bout at a Sverdlovsk Region leisure resort.

Ivanin formerly headed up the Interior Ministry's aviation and rapid reaction divisions.

The department includes the Interior Ministry's elite Zubr (Bison) and Rys (Lynx) special forces units and the Yastreb (Hawk) special purpose aviation unit. Ivanin was appointed the unit's head in June 2011.
