Russia is planning to introduce Digital IDs in 2024, as indicated in documents on the National Projects, which have been published on the government’s website, TASS reported.
However, according to the documents, Russians will be granted access to important digital government services in 2021.
At the same time, there are plans to establish a Digital Profile platform by 2023, which will facilitate data exchange between government agencies, individuals, commercial and non-profit organizations.
These measures will be taken in compliance with a national project dubbed Russia’s Digital Economy.
The National Projects related to 12 spheres (demographics, culture, healthcare, education, housing and urban environment, road infrastructure, labor productivity and employment support, science, the digital economy, small and middle-sized business, international cooperation and exports) were developed to implement the Russian president’s May 2018 Decree. The programs are planned to be effectuated in years up to and including 2024.
