The event was attended by Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Saak Karapetyan, Rector of the Academy of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation Oksana Kapinus and heads of the relevant departments of the Prosecutor General's Office of Russia.

The Republic of Cuba was represented by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Cuba to the Russian Federation Emilio Lozada Garcia, Chief Prosecutor of the Department of Defense, Security and Defense of the General Prosecutor's Office of the Republic of Cuba Carlos Salvador Mendieta Palomino, Attache of the Embassy of the Republic of Cuba in the Russian Federation Anna Krus Samodurova and the senior officials of different level of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Republic of Cuba.

In his address, the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation said that Russian and Cuban prosecutors have developed partnership, warm and friendly relations.

They are based on the long friendship of the peoples of the two states. The legal basis for the cooperation was the Agreement between the Prosecutors General of Russia and Cuba signed in 2011.

As part of its implementation, a number of joint activities have been carried out and two cooperation programs have been implemented. The third program was signed during the visit of Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Yuri Chaika to Havana in December last year. It is scheduled for 2017 - 2018.

Currently, the experts from prosecutors of the two countries have already exchanged good practices in the use of information technology in prosecutorial activities. They will also exchange experience in identifying, seizing, confiscating and recovering assets derived from crime.

In addition, the program envisages training courses for Cuban prosecutors on the basis of the Academy of the Prosecutor General's Office of Russia.

In turn, the representatives of the delegation of the Republic of Cuba highly appreciated an offsite study organized by the Academy in the General Prosecutor's Office of the Russian Federation with the participation of the General Department of Personnel.

In conclusion, Yuri Chaika stressed that the interaction of the prosecutor's offices contributes to the deepening and development of the Russian-Cuban relations. He reiterated the strong commitment to further development of cooperation between Russian and Cuban prosecutors.
