Congratulations on Prosecutor’s Office Workers Day

January 11, 2019

Vladimir Putin congratulated current and former staff of Russia’s prosecution authorities on their professional holiday.

The message reads, in part:

“Established in 1722, the prosecution service has a high mission of embodying the government’s justice and fairness, firmly ensuring the rule of law and the unity of the national legal space.

You have every right to be proud of the many generations preceding you who had a deep understanding of their duty and displayed civil courage, competence, probity and integrity in their challenging undertakings.

Today, just as at any other point in its history, the prosecution service is an essential and key link in the national law enforcement architecture. It is for this reason that, building on your professionalism, determination and devotion to your duty, you are the ones who are largely tasked with safeguarding the rights and interests of the Russian citizens, effectively fighting organised crime, corruption and other challenges.

I strongly believe that you will continue to work in good faith, respect the glorious traditions set by veterans, and serve your Motherland and its people faithfully and loyally.”
