During his visit to Tehran, Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Igor Krasnov met with the head of the Iranian Judiciary Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ezhei. The parties decided to cooperate in various fields, including in the field of riot control.

According to Kommersant with reference to the press service of the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation, the countries are distinguished by a commonality of views on world problems and common approaches to overcoming them.

According to the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, one of the serious challenges for the state authorities are attempts to destabilize the domestic situation from the outside and create ground for mass riots.

“Russia has faced this, and in our country, effective legislation and certain tactics have been formed, in my opinion, to effectively counter these and other similar phenomena, including information crime”, - Krasnov said.

Earlier it was reported that in recent months, unrest has not subsided in Iran, caused by the policy of excessive “tightening the screws” and state intervention in the private lives of citizens. The reason for the riots was the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, who was detained by the Iranian morality police for "wrong" wearing the hijab. After being taken to the station, the girl fell into a coma and died.

Relatives of the victim believe she was beaten by the police, but the authorities deny the allegations. Amini's death brought thousands of outraged citizens to the streets. Under the pressure of the protesters, the Iranian authorities pretended to make concessions and allegedly disbanded the odious morality police, but then it turned out that this was a hoax. After that, the protests continued. The authorities brutally suppress them. In recent days, two death sentences have already been passed on protesters in the country. The spiritual leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei, expressed the opinion that the unrest is fueled from abroad by the US and Israeli authorities.

In early December, Iranian Ambassador to Russia Kazem Jalali announced that the two countries intend to sign a long-term comprehensive cooperation agreement in the near future. An agreement has now been signed between the two countries on the foundations of relations and principles of cooperation. It was signed almost 20 years ago. Initially, the contract was signed for ten years.
