The implementation of international cooperation activities in the field of forensic expertise covers a very wide range of issues. Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise continues an active path of integration with the international community.
Thus, within the framework of establishing international cooperation, Oleksandr Ruvin, the director of Kyiv Research Institute of Forensic Expertise of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine, and Olha Kataraga, the director of the National Center for Forensic Expertise of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Moldova, have signed a Cooperation Memorandum.
State specialized institutions will have the opportunity to hold joint scientific conferences, symposia, seminars, exchange of interns, scientific information and printed publications, as well as to conduct joint publications in the field of forensic expertise and criminalistics.
Forensic activity is aimed at conducting independent forensic examinations through an objective, complete and comprehensive research, observing contemporary achievements in science and technology. The organization of work of forensic institutions and their structural subdivisions, scientific and methodical and information support, selection and training of personnel is a complicated and responsible process. According to Oleksandr Ruvin, the director of the Kyiv Scientific Research Institute of Forensic Expertise, it is a fairly wide and multidimensional activity, and, importantly, international cooperation activities are being implemented in each area of forensic expert activity.
The leaders of the two institutions agreed that international cooperation is called upon to solve one of the main contradictions: the crime has become international, and the means of struggle against it are mostly national. Under such conditions, international cooperation in the field of forensic expertise, attraction of the best examples of both domestic and foreign experience is one of the urgent tasks of the Ukrainian expert institutions and law enforcement agencies.
