About 400 cases of family scandals a day are registered by the Department of Internal Affairs of Mogilev region. The information was provided by deputy head of public order and prevention department the DIA Alexander Petrusevich.
The major factor leading to scandals is drug abuse. The number of women to be blamed for triggering conflicts off has increased tenfold. “It’s an alarm bell, as far as women make homes and bring children up”, Alexander Petrusevich stressed.
Within three months of the current year, the number of crimes committed in a state of alcoholic intoxication went down by 9.5% (by 640 cases) comparing with the respective period of the previous year. At the same time, the amount of individuals held criminally liable for public drunk increased from 9818 to 10441.
Forty-eight people died from alcoholic intoxication (last year - 43). And only one fatal outcome was due to jake, others just drank too much.
About 1800 people (900 of them - women) are on the list of legally liable to provide the state’s reimbursement for their children’s housing and educating. “Some of them are just people in tight situations, but others break labour discipline, shirk work; we can do nothing but send them to special medical and work clinics”, Alexander Petrusevich stated. Within January-March the number of the latter made up 362 people (last year - 308), 128 of them were women (last year - 108).
“Unfortunately, there are not enough vacancies in special medical and work clinics, e.g. there is only one such clinic for women in the Republic – in Gorki district of Mogilev region. At present there are 500 women there, though it is supposed to accept only 250 ones at a time. 100 more are waiting for their turn to be sent there.”
Mogilev region’s Department of Internal Affairs pays much attention to preventing illicit alcohol trafficking. Within the period of January-March of 2013 there was a four-fold increase in confiscating alcoholic drinks (to 217474 litres, including 193,232 litres of jake, and 24,242 litres of home-distilled vodka) comparing with the respective period of the previous year.
