RNA - "Women are obliged to respect the rules and requirements of security and communication which is at the level of their interests, and requires the recognition of their identity in an automatic and permanent manner, especially in the workplace," the statement said, Sputnik reported.


The document has also listed instructions to be strictly adhered to, saying that any clothes preventing women from carrying out their public duties are banned.


The decision has already been criticized, as many people wonder how a niqab may obstruct women from doing their jobs.


The government had earlier announced that female students were not permitted to wear headscarves during tests or exams emphasizing that it could be used as a way of cheating.
