Since the beginning of the year, 3152 cars have been stolen in Ukraine. The official amount of losses is almost 49 million hryvnias.
According to one of the founders of the Ukrainian Organized Crime Control Department Valery Kura, in the field of car theft there are only real gang. The most important thing is that they cannot be exposed, because there is corruption and concealment “at a very high level.”
In this regard, the kidnappers simply and unhinderedly bypass police posts and cameras, forge documents, and then sell the stolen cars.
We will remind, in Ukraine penalties for car theft were strengthened. Criminals now face imprisonment.
