The Prosecution Service of the Russian Federation, as a unified and centralised body of the federal government, supervises the observance of the Russian Constitution and the current federal legislation.
On 12 January 1722, Peter the Great founded the Prosecution Service in Russia by issuing his Highest Decree to the Governing Senate. When the Prosecution Service was created, it was tasked by Peter the Great “to destroy or weaken the evil arising from disorders in actions, injustice, bribery and lawlessness”.
As a result of legislative transformations, the Russian Prosecution Service was finally formed as a structurally and functionally independent public authority outside any branch of government.
Priority areas of activity of the Prosecutor General’s Office include combating crime and corruption, protecting the rights and legitimate interests of citizens, and ensuring a single legal space in Russia.
