“I am doubly pleased to note that the Government of the Russian Federation and Russian Post have undertaken such a wonderful action associated with the anniversary of the Russian supervisory agency,” said Igor Krasnov.

The Deputy Prime Minister noted that the ceremony of commemorative cancellation of postage signs is always timed to coincide with significant historical, sports and cultural events for the country: Victory in the Great Patriotic War, anniversaries of great writers, the Olympic Games in Sochi.

“The prosecutor’s office is a reliable pillar of the country, defending the principles of justice. Its employees stand guard over the rights and legitimate interests of citizens. They are constantly monitoring the progress of the implementation of national projects. Thanks to modern technology, supervisory authorities are also confronting such a serious challenge as cybercrime. And the cancellation of the postage stamp in honor of the 300th anniversary of the department once again symbolizes its high importance in the state system. I have no doubt that this postal block will not only serve to send correspondence, but will also become a valuable philatelic artifact, ”said Dmitry Chernyshenko.

The postal block was designed by Alexander Moskovets. For its cancellation, a special souvenir stamp was also made.

The face value of a postage stamp is 100 rubles. The circulation was released 25 thousand copies.

On January 12, 1722, in accordance with the Imperial Decree of Peter I, the Russian Prosecutor’s Office was established to the Governing Senate. When the prosecutor’s office was created by Peter I, the task was set to “destroy or weaken the evil arising from disorder in business, injustice, bribery and lawlessness”.

Since 1802, the institute of the Prosecutor’s Office has become an integral part of the newly formed Ministry of Justice, and the Minister of Justice became the Prosecutor General ex officio.
