La police russe en procès

Abstract : Highhanded police action did not end in Russia with the fall of the USSR. While the country’s authorities consistently denounce police abuses, deploring the lack of confidence the population affords them, the frequently announced police reforms which should improve the working conditions and wages of policemen and bring them closer the citizens, has still not seen the day. The obligation to produce results, which remains the principal assessment factor, has constrained agents to «meet the quota» to the detriment of investigating complex affairs. Moreover, low wages very often pushes them, in addition to corruption, to search for lucrative jobs even within the framework of their functions. For this reason the fight against police corruption has become the state’s battle-cry enabling it to avoid reflecting on basic institutional reforms.
