The government after the statements of the Kremlin about the fact that a state of emergency in the country does not need, asked for authority for its introduction

the Russian Government has submitted to the state Duma a bill that would allow the Cabinet of Ministers in case of necessity to introduce a state of emergency due to the spread of the coronavirus. The document is published on the website of the lower house of Parliament. According to him, the government will be able to set binding rules of conduct, the introduction of regimes of high alert and emergency.

it is Noteworthy that a few hours earlier the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov called inappropriate “possible reasoning” about introduction of state of emergency in the country. “We have a de facto epidemic there, and in fact our situation is much better than in many countries”, – he said, answering a question of journalists why Vladimir Putin in his address to the nation announced a state of emergency.

Now a state of emergency at the Federal level may be introduced by the decision of the government Commission on prevention and liquidation of emergency situations headed by Minister of emergency situations. From the explanatory notes to the new bill follows that he will give the government the right to take over the functions of the coordinating body of the unified state system of prevention and liquidation of emergency situations.
