Sputnik Council of the Russian Federation
The President of the Federation Council (the Supreme Council of the Russian Parliament), Valentina Matviyenko, told reporters that Russia does not need special passports granted to those who have received a vaccine against “Covid-19”.
Therefore, it will not issue “Covid” passports.
She said, “For misunderstandings or other reasons, this issue is being promoted in the wrong way in the media.” She added, “No one has announced the circulation of” Covid “passports in Russia, as they do not need them.”
She explained that there was talk about the electronic registration process for everyone who received the vaccine. And she recalled that vaccination in our country is not considered compulsory, but rather voluntary.
She indicated that some people think that they will obtain a red card that gives citizens additional rights and capabilities. It is not like this. ”
It is noteworthy that the newspaper “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” had previously reported that Russian citizens could, from January 1 this year, obtain an electronic certificate proving their vaccination order on the government services website. They can also present the certificate in the form of a QR code in the mobile application. The newspaper said that 34,000 Russian citizens had received the certificate.
