"After the shootings, Russian officials declared that they would move quickly to address the troubled Moscow police force, and President Dmitri A. Medvedev took the unusual step of firing Moscow’s police chief, Vladimir V. Pronin."
Mr. Yevsyukov apparently has been written up many times for a number of instances of misconduct including abusing other officers. Yet, he managed to get promoted and be considered a sort of protégé.
"Mr. Yevsyukov spent the evening before the shootings celebrating his birthday at a Moscow cafe, according to investigators. For reasons that are still unclear, Mr. Yevsyukov left the cafe intoxicated, went home and put on his uniform jacket over his civilian clothing. He also grabbed a Makarov 9-millimeter pistol."
Russia's just falling apart.
