The Russian Investigative Committee has successfully passed yet another examination in professionalism by effectively doing its job and once again has justified trust of the President and people, proven its necessity and won decent portion of the public respect and recognition.
On New Year’s Eve, I wholeheartedly thank all the employees of the Investigative Committee for selflessness and persistence you display while consolidating law and order.
