"This draft decree will enable a larger number of (Ministry) staff members to participate in the work of the UN and the OSCE and to fill vacancies in police managerial positions. This will contribute to enhancing the Russian Federation's prestige in the international arena," an official at the Interior Ministry's press center emphasized.
