Call of Duty: Cop uses YouTube to warn Putin of corruption

A police officer in Southern Russia has been fired after publicly accusing his bosses of corruption. The online broadcast by Major Aleksey Dymovsky has turned the spotlight on the problem in the country. Dymovsky calls on Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to take steps to fight corruption in the police force. He says officers are forced to make up criminal charges against innocent people, in order to cover up the police’s inability to track down real criminals. Although Dymovsky was immediately fired for what his superiors considered slander, an official probe has been launched by the country’s interior ministry into the situation in the local police department. The video has attracted hundreds of thousands viewers on YouTube since it was posted last week.
