Base on trending report gathered the order has sparked public outcry from gynaecologists and politicians alike who believe the checks will dissuade young girls from seeing the doctor when they need to.

However health minister Vladimir Shuldyakov said doctors must follow the order and “inform police about all cases when virginity was lost as well as about cases of
pregnancies and abortions involving girls under 16 years old.”

The order instructs doctors to check the “integrity of the hymen” and look for signs of damage.
It comes just months after domestic violence was partially decriminalised in the country, where women’s rights remain lacking.

The move to give domestic abusers fewer punishments sparked worldwide anger.
