On Board in 2017, Putin drew attention that half of all crimes in Russia remain unsolved, said the merits of the Ministry of internal Affairs in the process of creating Regardie and expressed support for the initiative of the State Duma introducing criminal liability for incitement to suicide on the Internet.

The President said then also that unsolved crimes remain in such sensitive areas as the fight against corruption, protection of citizens, their property and businesses from criminal attacks. He paid great attention to public safety and urged strongly to stop any violations of immigration law.

The President also called on the Ministry of internal Affairs together with colleagues from other power structures as well tough to stop extremism in the country, work without compromise, introducing new effective methods of work.

The Minister of internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev, in turn, told the Board in 2017, in Russia by the end of 2016 was blocked over 3 thousand web resources, which were disseminated to extremist appeals and was recruited to radical organizations, «identified 200 cases of support of terrorist activities».

In addition, said the Minister, the police together with the FSB in 2016 prevented the penetration of extremists from Ukraine, as well as the carriage of explosives, arms and ammunition from this country to Russia.

The Minister in his report said that in 2016, decreased the number of homicides (7.5%), cases of intentional personal injury (10%), assaults (almost 20%) and robbery (approximately 16%), and deaths on the roads in 2013 fell by more than a quarter.

In addition, the President declared the Board in 2017, the transformations of the interior Ministry in the process of creating Regardie were painless, and it is a great merit of the leadership and personnel of the Ministry.
