MINSK, 4 March (BelTA) - Belarus police have crime under full control, Belarus' Minister of internal Affairs Ivan Kubrakov told reporters, BelTA has learned.

"Our focus is on prevention, on solving crimes. Now more crimes are committed on the internet. But the police do not stand still. We have been working quite successfully on this front too. We have set up new divisions such as the Directorate General for Combating Cybercrime. Therefore, no matter how hard someone tries to hide under ‘nicknames' we will find them and bring them to justice," Ivan Kubrakov said.

According to him, special attention is paid to the prevention of violent crimes. "The problem is still here. Not only the police but all government agencies are involved in the efforts to deal with them. It is mostly domestic crimes, ranging from bodily harm to murder. About 80% of grave crimes are domestic crimes, as a rule alcohol related and committed by people who know each other ," he added.

On 4 March Ivan Kubrakov took part in a ceremony to lay wreaths at the monument to police officers and soldiers of internal troops who died in the line of duty. “This is an iconic place for all officers and the younger generation. It reminds us of the qualities of a true professional: dedication, courage, and loyalty to duty and oath. I am convinced that today every policeman is ready to fight, even at the cost of his life, against any challenges to ensure law and order in the country," the minister said.

The participants of the solemn ceremony laid flowers and wreaths at the monument and, together with the honor guards, commemorated the heroes with a minute of silence. The event wrapped up with a procession.
