Deputies of the State Council of Chuvashia at a meeting on November 25, by a majority vote, supported amendments to the federal law on sanitary and epidemic welfare, introducing the use of QR codes.
According to the data on the scoreboard of the republican parliament, the bill was supported by 33 people, seven were against, three abstained.
The bill caused a heated discussion in the State Council of Chuvashia. However, the Minister of Health of the region Vladimir Stepanov noted that among the seriously ill patients there are practically no those who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus. In turn, Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of Chuvashia – Minister of Economic Development and Property Relations of the republic Dmitry Krasnov recalled that “this issue was considered at meetings of five committees of the State Council of the republic and was approved.”
Earlier on the same day, it was reported that the federal bill on the introduction of QR codes in public places and on some types of transport did not get the required number of votes in the parliament of North Ossetia. Only 30 people voted “for”, while 35 were needed to pass the bill.
At the same time, on the day the Legislative Assembly of the Chelyabinsk Region considered bills on the introduction of mandatory QR codes in transport and in public places, it was reported that opponents of QR codes in Chelyabinsk staged a brawl with security guards in the lobby of the regional parliament building. Chairman of the Legislative Assembly Committee on Social Policy Sergei Buyakov told Izvestia that the conflict was resolved after accepting appeals from those who came.
Earlier, on the morning of November 22, more than 500 people who did not have QR codes were dropped off the transport in Tatarstan. The specialists of Metroelektrotrans told about a half-hour delay in the movement of tram routes, due to the fact that the passenger refused to show the QR code and did not leave the tram, but called the police, calling the conductor’s actions illegal. It was noted that in the metro there is a roughly similar situation: before entering the station, passengers begin to be indignant and break into the controllers.
Prior to that, on November 12, the government of the Russian Federation submitted to the State Duma two bills suggesting the introduction of QR codes for visiting public places, as well as for travel by rail and air. Prior to the discussion of bills in the State Duma, the regions must submit their responses to them, after which the State Duma Committee on Healthcare will begin to consider them and prepare for the first reading.
The head of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation Mikhail Murashko, in turn, on November 10, noted the high efficiency of using QR codes in a pandemic. The head of Rospotrebnadzor, Anna Popova, said that QR codes have already been introduced in 77 Russian regions against the backdrop of a pandemic.
Against the backdrop of a worsening epidemiological situation, the Russian authorities are urging residents to get vaccinated in order to protect their health and take care of their loved ones. Citizens are vaccinated for free. Five vaccines against coronavirus have been registered in the country: Sputnik V, which became the first vaccine against COVID-19 in the Russian Federation and the world, as well as Sputnik Light, EpiVacCorona, EpiVacCorona-N and KoviVak.
