Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin ordered citizens of the country that violated the quarantine to be notified of the violations via SMS and through the e-government portal.

As of April 1, the Russian Ministry of Health will begin to provide information to the Ministry of Communication about coronavirus patients, people in contact with them and in quarantine. Information about citizens who violate the quarantine will be transmitted to the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Health and the Russian Human Health and Consumer Protection Agency (Rospotrebnadzor).

In addition, information about Russian citizens who come from countries where coronavirus disease is more common and should be isolated by staying at home will be given to the Social Insurance Fund and the Moscow government.

The State Duma, the lower wing of the Russian parliament, previously adopted a draft law, which stipulates fines and imprisonment of up to 7 years for those who do not comply with the quarantine practices imposed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
