Speech by Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov, Head of the Russian delegation, at the 26th session of the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ), Vienna, May 22, 2017

Mr Chairman, First of all, allow me to congratulate you and other members of the Bureau on your election and express my confidence that the session will resolve its tasks under your professional leadership. Mr Chairman, The Russian Federation has consistently supported the UN’s central coordinating role in international cooperation against global challenges and threats, primarily, transnational organised crime and terrorism.  We believe the efforts of the international community to counter these challenges and threats should be based on the solid foundation of international law. We are convinced that UN forums in Vienna, above all the UN Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, are the main multilateral formats for expert debates on countering crime, sharing experience and best practices, and mapping out main areas of anti-crime cooperation, including the elaboration of new field-specific international legal instruments. Mr Chairman, Russia considers very important the UN Convention against Transnational Organised Crime (UNTOC), the only universal document on fighting international crime. We would like to emphasise the importance of the efforts to launch the mechanism of monitoring compliance with this convention, and we have high praise for the results of the conference on drafting the rules and procedures for this mechanism, which took place in Vienna on April 24-26 of this year. We welcome the initiative to a hold high-level discussion of the UN General Assembly on the problems of implementing UNTOC and its protocols in New York on June 19 and are ready to fully engage in it. Mr Chairman, The accelerating pace of globalisation is adding new dimensions to the problem of transnational organised crime that is increasingly threatening the social, economic, humanitarian and cultural development of states and whole regions, as well as their political stability and security. In these conditions we must obviously continue building up international law-enforcement cooperation and take robust joint action to eliminate transnational criminal networks and curb existing and newly emergent types and forms of criminal activities. The task of fighting ICT-based crime has been acquiring special importance recently...
