Russians will have mandatory biometric registration

Personal data stored on the cared will include name, age, place and date of birth, identity documents, fingerprints, palm prints, the results of genomic registration and information regarding drug dependence or any other relevant data.
For the collection, storage and processing of fingerprint and biometric data was proposed to create a new department within the Federal Security Service or the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
