“Video analytics systems,” the procurement materials said, should “automatically analyze facial images” to identify drivers and compare their faces with all the data that is in the “biometric database or in a specific list.” The materials do not specify what kind of base and list it is.

The Russian authorities plan to install such systems at checkpoints:

  • on the border with China (Zabaikalsk, Pogranichny and Kraskino);
  • on the border with Poland (Bagrationovsk, Mamonovo);
  • on the border with Lithuania (Chernyshevskoye);
  • on the border with Kazakhstan (Mashtakovo, Orsk, Sagarchin).

A division of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation asks to install the equipment by November 25, 2023.
