17:17 20/01/2021

MOSCOW, January 20 (RAPSI) – Chairman of the Presidential Council for Human Rights Valery Fadeyev on Wednesday argued against COVID passports.

According to Fadeyev, such passports can restrict the rights of citizens who have not vaccinated against coronavirus.

Earlier, several Russian regions discussed the possibility of introduction of the so-called COVID passports.

Fadeyev believes it necessary to create a special database of the vaccinated citizens. However, COVID passports may lead to certain human rights violations, he said during a news conference on Wednesday.

Earlier, Russia’s High Commissioner for Human Rights expressed concern over such passports. She said there were certain categories of citizens, who could not be vaccinated because of their health. There are questions about the protection of the rights of such citizens and the circumstances, under which restrictive measures with respect to them will be removed, Moskalkova observed.
