Russian Prosecutor General Igor Krasnov met in Tehran with the head of the Iranian Judiciary, Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ezhei, and called for an "exchange of experience" between countries in suppressing protests. Krasnov called it a fight against attempts "from outside to destabilize the domestic situation."
This, according to the Prosecutor General, is relevant, since the countries have “a common view of world problems and common approaches to overcoming them,” and Russia has in its arsenal “effective legislation and tactics that allow it to effectively resist” protests.
These statements are made against the backdrop of large-scale protests in Iran that erupted after the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini - she was killed because of the wrong hijab. The riots are still going on.
Iran, meanwhile, is using its own "tactic": the second participant in the protests has been publicly executed in the country. Majid Reza Rahnavard, 23, was sentenced to death for "enmity against God" and hanged in the Shiite holy city of Mashahd.
In December, Iran turned to Russia for help in putting down a popular uprising and asked for equipment to fight the protests, as well as send advisers for training, Iran International TV channel reported, citing secret documents. The Iranian Interior Ministry officially acknowledged the death of 200 citizens during the protests. According to human rights activists, more than 460 people died.
