Sverdlovsk Governor Eugene Kuyvashev praised veterans and employees of Sverdlovsk’s prosecutor’s office on Monday for contributing to the good quality of life in Urals.
"Effective work contributes to the prosecution of crimes solved,” Kuyvashev said. “Significant progress has been made in the fight against corruption, countering terrorism and extremism.”
Sverdlovsk’s prosecutors also provide counsel concerning the efficiency of the region’s budget spending. They have been crucial in upholding respect for the citizens’ constitutional rights, standing for the quality of Russia’s justice system and promoting the rights of socially vulnerable individuals and groups.
"Prosecutors perform essential tasks of protecting the rights and freedoms of the people, the fight against crime and corruption, strengthening of the authority of the government, providing the Russians conditions for safe life and creative work,” Kuyvashev said.
The Sverdlovsk region hires more than a thousand professionals as public prosecutors.
In 2014, prosecutors discovered over 65,000 violations of Russia’s federal laws. They also read over 50,000 applications from citizens.
Kuyvashev congratulated the prosecutors at their professional holiday on Monday. The holiday marks the anniversary of Emperor Peter I's signing of a decree on Jan. 12, 1722, that established the public prosecutor’s supervision as an institution.
