The Russian Foreign Ministry said that Moscow sees signs of a discriminatory attitude abroad towards Russian diplomats who were vaccinated against coronavirus with a Russian vaccine. Earlier, the media reported that a number of foreign diplomats who arrived in Russia could not get a QR code, as they were vaccinated with drugs not registered in the country. At the same time, it was reported that Russian diplomats abroad faced similar problems.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that “in some foreign countries,” local authorities “introduce the order of movement for the quarantine period,” which complicates the work of domestic representative offices and puts their employees “in a deliberately unequal position.”
“De facto, this can be interpreted as discrimination against our diplomats,” the ministry added.
