the day could not do without problems, but such a measure will help preserve the health of citizens. This is how the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov assessed the situation, he is quoted by TASS.
“Of course, such decisions cannot be implemented without certain problems at the initial stage, but we hope that the situation will soon level out,” said the official Kremlin.
He noted that the only goal pursued by the authorities is “to ensure the safety of people's health.”
Over the morning of Monday, November 22, more than 500 people were dropped off from public transport in Kazan due to the lack of QR codes. The presentation of digital passes also made it difficult to board the metro, due to the Russian who refused to show the document, tram routes were delayed. Against the background of restrictive measures in the city, taxi prices have increased.
QR codes in public transport in Tatarstan must be presented from November 22. The region became the first entity to announce such measures. Documents will also be checked when selling tickets. If a resident refuses to present the QR code, he will have to leave the vehicle.
