Russian Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev said those police officers who break the law end up in prison despite their ranks.
“Lawbreakers are put in prison despite ranks and titles,” Kolokoltsev said live on the Rossiya TV channel on Sunday evening.
He added that incidents when police officers commit offenses are not hushed up.

Critics accused Kolokoltsev’s predecessor on the post, Rashid Nurgaliyev, of failing to carry out a police reform.
