Welcoming his foreign colleague, Igor Krasnov thanked him for fruitful participation in the 52nd meeting of the Executive Committee of the International Association of Prosecutors and in general for his significant contribution to the work of this organization.

“I think you will share my opinion that the Association should focus on new challenges and threats that are of concern of the entire international community,” underlined the head of the Russian supervision authority. Talking about new challenges and threats, Igor Krasnov highlighted cybercrime, including criminal trafficking of cryptocurrency, shadow commerce of information, arms, narcotic drugs and illegal services in the Darknet, as well as legalization of the proceeds of crime from transactions with digital assets.

The Prosecutor General of Russia lamented that the Internet is increasingly becoming a source of negative influence on the young generation. “This leads to the increase of violence against minors and of cases of adolescents’ implication in destructive communities,” he noted.

Moreover, Igor Krasnov drew attention of his colleague to the problems of falsification of medical products and massive disinformation of the population, which are still topical in the conditions of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“These and many other transnational problems cannot be solved on one’s own,” emphasized Igor Krasnov. He expressed his opinion that a search for ways to counteract the above problems is of mutual interest of the prosecution authorities of Russia and Argentina.

The Prosecutor General of Russia also reminded of the expected appointment of an Attorney General of the Argentine Republic, which permits to implement the agreements previously reached between the prosecution authorities of the two countries regarding the signing of the Cooperation Program and, therefore, to provide the impetus to the joint work in designated indications.

The head of the Russian supervision authority proposed to resume consultations at the expert level right away to discuss the most topical problems of bilateral interaction.

In conclusion, Igor Krasnov thanked his foreign colleague for the visit, expressed his great interest in the gradual implementation of practical steps towards each other and welcomed the constructive forms of cooperation.
