The Russian Ministry of Defense came to the government with an initiative, proposing to free servicemen from QR codes confirming vaccination. The agency proposes to allow one category of citizens to get by with a vaccination certificate. Izvestia at the ministry.
The draft resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, which was prepared by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, states that in places to visit which it is necessary to present a QR code, it will be enough for the military to show a certificate of vaccination and a document confirming identity and membership in the Armed Forces.
Such a document for officers is an identity card, and for soldiers and sergeants – a military ID. They do not need to receive the code. They want to extend the same rules, including to military pensioners.
Now the document is being approved by the government. However, this implementation requires a number of risks to be taken into account. “First, the issue of protecting certificates from falsification has to be resolved. “Secondly, there is a possibility that some business owners may refuse services upon presentation of a certificate, either out of ignorance or out of fear of inspectors,” said Oleg Zherdev, founder of the Russian Association of Lawyers for Law Enforcement Agencies “Gvardia”.
For military personal information, passport data, marital status, approved photographs, SNILS, TIN, fingerprint data, medical diagnoses and more are used.
Earlier, the Federation Council Committee on Science, Education and Culture supported the concept of the draft federal law on the introduction of QR codes in public places. According to the senators, due to the situation in the country, the bill must be adopted urgently. Federation Council member Petr Tultaev also said that the project is aimed at preserving the health of Russians.
