Lavrov: Vaccine passport contrary to voluntary inoculation

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov (pictured) argued on Tuesday that the digital vaccine passport proposal is contrary to the idea of voluntary inoculation against COVID-19.

The European Union's potential digital certificate would be against the bloc's democracy rules, the minister asserted, adding that Moscow will wait for Brussels to reach a final decision on the issue before deciding how to respond.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen yesterday said Brussels is considering implementing a digital vaccination passport law.
