That is why the law enforcement authorities are required to take adequate and up-to-date measures to protect human rights, the interests of society and the State from such encroachments’.
The head of the supervisory authority underlined, ‘After all, our common ultimate goal is to ensure justice, bring culprits to justice, and protect the civil rights and legally protected interests of society and the State.’
Mr. Igor Krasnov told his foreign colleagues about the possibility of advanced training at the University of the Prosecution Service of the Russian Federation, having noted that such a form of interaction enabled to expand the opportunities for the exchange of both scientific knowledge and practical experience in resolving issues and problems that prosecutors faced on a daily basis.
In concluding the meetings, the Prosecutor General invited the heads of the respective offices to take part in the commemorative activities dedicated to the 300th anniversary of the establishment the Russian Prosecution Service scheduled for January 2022.
