Government allowed to introduce emergency mode in regions due to coronavirus

State Duma deputies in the third, final reading adopted amendments to the law on emergency measures in connection with the spread of coronavirus in Russia. Among them are business support and the introduction of an emergency regime in the regions.

According to the State Duma press service, the amendments define the powers of the Russian government to introduce emergency situations. Now the federal authorities will be able to establish special regimes and rules for their observance in individual entities.

Also, because of the coronavirus, a special procedure has been introduced for the registration and circulation of drugs, as in the conditions of hostilities. Also, in the event of an emergency, the government will be able to limit the wholesale and retail trade of certain medical devices for up to 90 days.

Entrepreneurs are offered to support a maratorium on initiating bankruptcy proceedings; the tourism sector will be temporarily exempted from contributions to the personal liability fund. From the same fund will be refunded for trips to tourists in each closed country

In addition, under emergency mode, because of the coronavirus, it will now be easier to conduct public procurements without competitive procedures and from a single supplier. At the same time, for the rest of the contracts, the coronavirus will become a force majeure circumstance that will allow to delay the execution of the contract.

State Duma deputies also tightened penalties for violating quarantine and disseminating false information about coronavirus in Russia. Now both offenses may end in real time
