PACE Assures Those Inoculated With Sputnik V Vaccine Not Banned From Autumn Session
MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Participants of the autumn session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) can be inoculated with any coronavirus vaccine authorized by Council of Europe (CoE) member states, including Russia's Sputnik V, PACE told Sputnik on 24 September, commenting on claims of discrimination.

Earlier this week, Russia's senior lawmaker Vladimir Krugly said that the Russian delegation will participate in the autumn session remotely, since movement across Strasbourg will be restricted because of the EU non-recognition of Sputnik V. On 24 September, the head of the delegation, lawmaker Pyotr Tolstoy, confirmed that the delegation will not travel to Strasbourg.

"Official visitors to Council of Europe premises may make use of ALL vaccines licensed by Council of Europe member states – which of course includes the Sputnik vaccine. All visitors are asked to fill in a "Covid self-declaration form" where they attest that they are either vaccinated with one of these vaccines, have a negative Covid test, or have recovered from Covid. This means that visitors can indeed enter CoE buildings if they can show a negative PCR test of less than 72 hours, or a negative antigen test of less than 48 hours. Of course, the usual hygiene measures also apply to all who are on the premises," PACE said, when asked to provide a clarification.

Germany Braces for Slow Federal Elections Under Coronavirus Restrictions
BERLIN (Sputnik) - Germany faces a slow election day on 26 September, despite lifting some coronavirus restrictions to allow citizens to exercise their constitutional right.

Germans will go to the polls to elect a new federal parliament, after which Chancellor Angela Merkel will step down. No party is expected to win a majority and several coalition options are likely.

Federal election commissioner Georg Thiel said on Friday that voters will not be obligated to present a vaccination certificate or a negative COVID-19 test to access polling stations, which is a must for all public events. Mask wearing, hygiene rules and social distancing will be kept in place.

Geert Baasen, a spokesperson for the Berlin election authority, told Sputnik that the city authorities would restrict the number of both voters and election staff present at a polling place to avoid bottlenecks. Voters will be allowed to stand in lines outside.

Baasen predicted that COVID-19 restrictions would "in any case" slow down the electoral process. Despite this, the voting will not be extended beyond 6 p.m. (16:00 GMT) when polling places close. A large number of Berliners have already cast their ballots by mail.

Police presence in Berlin will increase during the voting. Police told Sputnik that patrols would be organized so that officers could arrive at a polling place "as soon as possible." The exact number of patrol officers will not be revealed until the election day.
