According to Maj. General Khamis Mattar, Dubai Police is interested to develop cooperation with the Russian-speaking community in Dubai at all levels. He stressed that Dubai Police is constantly diversifying its services and improves its work. "The number of tourists from Russia is growing as they enjoy the highest level of service at the best restaurants, hotels and shopping centers of Dubai. Policemen at the emergency department are learning Russian language to be able to communicate with Russian-speaking tourists and quickly resolve all issues."
Consul General of Russia Gocha Buachidze thanked Dubai Police for the warm welcome and noted the high level of activity of its officers.
