The Russian side takes interest in interview technique classes, criminalistics, investigation of murders and prevention of crime. Besides, Russian students get acquainted with the London policemen's practical work and in May 2002 they managed to participate in pursuit and detention of a criminal, said the University.
The choice of the city of Helsinki is not incidental as the capital of Finland had hosted US-Soviet negotiations on the limitation of nuclear stockpiles in 1969
