The bonuses for police officers in Russia, as well as their promotions, will depend on whether they have been vaccinated against the coronavirus or not. The corresponding order was signed by the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation Vladimir Kolokoltsev, transmits RIA Novosti.
“Take into account whether employees, civil servants and workers have been vaccinated (completed course, including repeated) against COVID-19 over the past 6 months when making the following decisions regarding them: 1.1. About moving to higher positions. 1.2. On inclusion in the personnel reserve. … 1.5. On the amount of one-time bonuses,” the document says.
Lack of vaccinations, as the document says, “negatively affects the performance of official duties.” The decision on such measures was made due to the rapid spread of “omicron”.
In addition, police officers who have not been vaccinated may not be allowed to go on vacation.
