Caucasian checkpoints are extremely important2012-12-10 20:39
Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev has put an end of the public campaign against the roadblocks in the North Caucasus. The circumstances do not let" abandon them, he said. Complaints of violations of the rights of the citizens and extortion have not outweighed arguments for control over the movement of people between the subjects of the Federal District, even though they were very questionable. Only Chechens have achieved that part of guards was relocated to Dagestan.
Any checkpoint in the North Caucasus - Chermensky, Baksan or Kavkaz-1 - work on the principle of bribery: pay and drive without inspection or do not pay and wait your turn. Sometimes for indicative purposes they catch someone, charging him and initiating the seizure of weapons; but terrorist attacks still occur since the militants are well aware of the bypass road. Of course, in addition to the fortifications, at the administrative borders there are about checkpoints within the republics, but they also cannot cope with the tasks assigned to them. Checkpoints generally spoil the lives of law-abiding citizens.
Almost all North Caucasian entities have asked the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia to reduce the number of checkpoints and remove roadblocks from the administrative boundaries. But the department remains inflexible. Its head, Vladimir Kolokoltsev has rejected proposals to eliminate roadblocks.
"We are looking at the possibility of reducing the checkpoints, but the circumstances do not allow us to abandon them yet", said the head of the Interior Ministry. According to him, "it is too early to put a question on the complete withdrawal of these units".
Even head of the Main Directorate of the Interior Ministry on the North Caucasus Federal District Sergei Chenchik proposed to reduce the number of roadblocks due to complaints of the local population. He admitted that they were not effective enough. "We have seven federal checkpoints, where the employees come and serve six months, and, unfortunately, here works the human factor when an employee does not know the specifics of the region, is not fully aware of the situation, and again, he knows that he is temporarily on this post", the department head told about the shortcomings. Problem, he believes, could disappear due to the local guards and new facilities. Then the need for a large number of checkpoints disappears by itself.
