"It is necessary to map out optimum ways for fulfilling the tasks, set to the Russian Interior Ministry by Vladimir Putin, taking into consideration the peculiarities of the arisen criminal situation and perspectives of its development, as well as the changes that have taken place in the ministry's structure," said Friday the Interior Minister at the enlarged session of the Collegium, devoted to the results of the ministry's activity in 2003.
The general underscored that "the last year was very intense. But though the operational situation was very difficult we succeeded in accomplishing much of what had been planned." "Last year the ministry's staff fulfilled the tasks set, but we are not going to rest on our laurels," said the minister.
According to him, now it is necessary to analyse the causes of the mistakes and of the absence of the expected results, and to map out ways for increasing the efficiency of the work in conditions of criminal challenges and threats of our days.
Rashid Nurgaliyev noted that this year it was necessary to concentrate attention on the activity of the interior bodies in the Chechen Republic, "that is, to continue rendering all possible aid to the Chechen Interior Ministry, in the first place in disclosing resonance crimes."
