The message reads, in part:
“This holiday unites true professionals, those who chose the complicated and extremely important work related to protecting the legal rights and interests of the people, strengthening Russian statehood and democratic institutions, as well as ensuring the activities of businesses and all those involved in economic life.
Let me stress, your work requires deep knowledge of the law and the ability to apply it in practice, as well as, of course, a commitment to the unshakable traditions of Russian jurisprudence, the best representatives of which were distinguished by honesty and decency, impartiality and justice at all times.
Today Russia’s legal profession is facing serious tasks that are in high demand, the main ones being the drafting of high-quality laws and legal acts, improvement of case law and the fight against corruption, legal education and training highly qualified experts, as well as providing free legal assistance to people. And, of course, let me convey my special words of gratitude to the veterans of the Russian justice system who have dedicated their lives to serving the Law and can rightfully serve as an excellent example for the younger generation.”
