In Russia, they wanted to introduce mandatory QR codes for trains and air transport, as well as for visiting public places (for example, non-grocery stores without essential goods) – the authorities are preparing two relevant bills. About it told a source of RBC who participated in the preparation of the documents. The information was also confirmed by a source in the Cabinet.
According to him, within the framework of the first draft law prepared by the government, regional authorities “will have to ensure that people can visit mass events, cultural organizations, catering and retail trade either by a QR code on vaccination, or by a document stating that a person has had covid , or on a medical withdrawal from vaccination with a negative PCR test ”.
According to the bill, medical laboratories will be required to transmit the results of PCR tests to the portal of state services within 24 hours.
Without QR codes, Russians will only be able to get into pharmacies and grocery stores, as well as stores with essential goods. In addition, the requirement of documented immunity will not apply to public transport.
At the same time, the source of the publication noted that the decision on the introduction of QR codes and specific places where they will be distributed, the regions will take independently.
The second bill of the government proposes to amend the Air Code and the Charter of Railway Transport. Russians will be asked to show QR codes when buying tickets for a flight – such a requirement will come into force on the date set by the Cabinet.
A digital transport pass can be obtained for Russians with a negative PCR test, while the government can set a date after which a QR code will be issued only if there is data on vaccination against COVID-19 or a medical withdrawal from vaccination.
Foreigners vaccinated with vaccines not registered in Russia will be able to use transport if they have a negative PCR test.
“The operational headquarters together with the relevant departments are working on these bills. We will additionally inform the media about their introduction to the State Duma, ”the headquarters said.
According to Krugly, such a measure is not connected with the violation of the rights of Russians, but with the protection of their health. A member of the Federation Council believes that QR codes will not be introduced by federal laws, but does not exclude that the head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, may issue appropriate recommendations.
Fedot Tumusov, First Deputy Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Health Protection, also supported the idea of introducing digital passes.
Residents over 18 years old can get into public transport in Tatarstan only if they have a QR code or a certificate of medical evacuation from vaccination.
The regional authorities announced that they would also ask the Federal Air Transport Agency and Russian Railways to introduce QR codes in interregional transportation.
