Krasnoyarsk Krai, Stavropol Krai, Primorsky Krai, and Dagestan are Russia’s leading regions for violations of quarantine restrictions, Yuri Valyaev, the head of the Russian Interior Ministry’s department for ensuring public order told RIA Novosti. 

These regions have seen the most protocols drawn up for violations, relative to the number of local residents. As such, these numbers are not representative of absolute values for the regions in question, Valyaev underscored.

“Some citizens are demonstrating a lack of responsibility, they are blatantly violating the self-isolation regime, sometimes in large groups, and they are even flaunting it,” Valyaev said. He also noted that the majority of Russian residents are following the restrictions.
