Alex Kharchenko, a brand new Kyiv police patrol officer, stresses that it is dangerous to make a clear-cut distinction between the old militia and new police service, adding that any possible tensions in this regard are under control.  

“The start is very positive,” says Kharchenko. Confident in his choice of profession, the young officer admits that one “cannot foresee everything” when something is done for the first time.

Main challenges of 2,000-strong police force in Kyiv, which has been highlighted lately, are discussed with the “Kyiv cop” in an exclusive interview with Ukraine Today.
