Greetings on Lawyer’s Day

December 3, 2023

Vladimir Putin congratulated the Russian legal community on their professional holiday, Lawyer's Day.

The message reads, in part:

“This holiday was established 15 years ago in recognition of the exceptional contribution of the Russian legal community to safeguarding the constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens, upholding the rule of law, and strengthening Russian statehood. It is impossible to imagine the operation of businesses, the social sphere, and public organisations today without legal support and assistance.

I am confident that you will persist in addressing crucial tasks with utmost diligence, providing expert legal aid to people, including participants in the special military operation and their families, giving priority consideration to the improvement of the legal framework and law enforcement practices, cultivating legal culture in society, and upholding steadfast commitment to the best professional traditions.”
