Russian term or phrase: На учете нигде не состоит
"Na uchete nigde ne sostoit" means no VD/AIDS or no criminal record? Can someone confirm please?
Tosh
English translation:see explanation
Explanation:
This phrase usually means that a person is not registered as a VD (no AIDS VD only) patient (former as well), as an alcoholic (they used to be registered and still are in some former Soviet countries) or as a mentally disabled (all people who applied for psychiatric help were registered even if their ailments were minor ones). But it can also mean that aperson is not registered as a peson capable for the army service that can be drafted at the time of war. But the first explanation is the most probable. As for the criminal record there is another nicely put phrase.

Both, but the explanation is as follows


Explanation:
In fact, if someone is trying to obtain a reference from police, they can reply and issue a statement reading "no criminal record on him/her". But when one obtains a reference from medical bodies thay may state that he/she is not registered on their books, meaning neither AIDS nor TB or other deseases are on their records. So it depends. At least in Russia it is so. To prove it, I have translated masses of such things for notarization. It's for those who are leaving Russia mainly.
