“Many have gone self-employed (…) now there are 3.3 million people. This year alone, there are more than 1 million more self-employed people, ”said the president of Opora Rossii (quoted by Interfax).

Kalinin called the system of QR codes “salvation from lockdowns”, and he considered the decision of the State Duma to send the bill for public discussion reasonable. The public organization intends to prepare its position taking into account the views of the business community.

Earlier, Kalinin, who is now working in the Amur Region, said that it is possible to stop the decline in entrepreneurs’ incomes due to the introduction of the QR code system by canceling some of the other types of restrictions.
