Make no mistake: we’re corrupt

A Russian policeman’s revelations about bribery and incompetence is a hit on YouTube


Calling his bosses “ignorant, reckless, boorish and dim-witted,” Major Alexei Dymovsky, a Russian narcotics officer, vented his anger in a videotaped message that has now been seen by a half million viewers on YouTube. In a plea to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to clean up the notoriously corrupt force, he tells of how he was promoted after being forced to arrest an innocent man. “I’m sick and tired of it all,” Dymovsky says. “I want to resign.” Senior officers were all too eager to grant him his wish‹Dymovsky was promptly fired for insulting the force.
