High Commissioner addressed the Prime Minister of Russia

Dear Mikhail Vladimirovich!

Due to the deepening unfavorable epidemiological situation arising from the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the Russian Federation, I receive numerous complaints about the lack of antiseptics and medical masks in pharmacies.

This information was confirmed through the inspections conducted by me personally, by Commissioners for Human Rights in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, and by the staff of our Offices.

In order to uphold the rights of citizens to health protection and prevent Coronavirus infection, I ask you, dear Mikhail Vladimirovich, to consider the inclusion of medical masks and antiseptics in the Minimum range of medicines necessary for the provision of medical care, approved by Order of the Government of the Russian Federation of October 12, 2019, No. 2406-г and give relevant instructions to resolve this acute problem.

I would appreciate information on the measures taken.
