The Federal Migration Service has announced it will start issuing plastic IDs starting from 2015. According to its head, Konstantin Romodanovsky, a special work group has been set up to identify the design and the contents of the new passport, and draft a bill on the implementation procedure. 

Moscow and St. Petersburg have also been chosen for a pilot project to be launched in 2015, when Russians will be issued travel passports with their fingerprints inside. The microchip will feature the scans of both index fingers and will be identical in duration and price to the standards document.

As soon as the agency is certain the new passports are more effective and pose no security-related problems, they will be introduced in other regions, too, added Mr Romodanovsky.
