June 5, 2018

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to the participants and guests of a special event held to mark the 300th anniversary of Russian police.

The message reads, in part:

“Established in 1718, the police force launched the development of a new government institution for the protection of law and order.

Since then, the Russian police have been working effectively to attain its goals. The best police officers of Russia acted valiantly and courageously to protect law and order in the most difficult situations and emergencies.

It is noteworthy that our police officers honour the traditions of the service and venerate the courage, dedication and professionalism of the veteran

Society expects you to attain good results in your struggle against crime, corruption and other security threats. Yours is a difficult and responsible mission that demands experience and professional competence, as well as impeccable personal qualities.

I am confident that you will work diligently and honestly in the interests of the country and the people.”
