Because of the fact that in times of economic and political crisis there is jump in crime, experts forecast rise in domestic crime in 2021, as by the end of this year signs of this are already visible.

The survey shows that in 2019, 60% of victims did not go to the police at all to register crimes for various reasons - they thought that the crime was not serious enough, did not believe that the police would do something or because of other reasons.
