Vladimir Putin congratulates current and former workers of prosecutor’s offices

January 12, 2018

Vladimir Putin congratulated current and former workers of prosecutor’s offices on their professional holiday, Prosecutor’s Office Workers Day, and the 296th anniversary of the establishment of the prosecution service in Russia.

The message reads in part:

“Throughout its entire history, prosecution service has been rightfully considered a key institution of the national law enforcement system. The best representatives of prosecutor’s offices are renowned for their competence, civil courage, honesty and integrity as well as a readiness to firmly uphold law and justice.

It is important that the current generation of prosecution service workers realise the significance of their work, and address their tasks in a responsible manner. Their priority objectives include the fight against crime and corruption, protecting the rights and legitimate interests of citizens and guaranteeing the country’s integral legal infrastructure.”
