The Kremlin will draw the attention of the head of Primorye to the "whale prison" in the region

The Kremlin intends to appeal to the elected governor of Primorye Oleg Kozhemyako with a request to resolve the issue with the "whale prison" in Srednyaya Bay. 11 killer whales and 90 belugas keep there, which they illegally fished in summer and autumn of this year to sell to China.

As the presidential press secretary assured, Dmitry Peskov, quoted as saying RIA News"The Kremlin is aware of the fact that now the topic of the “whale prison” in Primorye is very actively discussed throughout the country and that animal advocates are sounding the alarm. For these reasons, the federal authorities intend to appeal to the head of the region, Oleg Kozhemyako, so that he can address this issue.

Now, the Prosecutor General’s Office, Rosprirodnadzor, the Border Guard Service of the Federal Security Service of Russia stand up in defense of killer whales and belugas. For the speedy release of animals, the Minister of Natural Resources of Russia Dmitry Kobylkin, the chairman of the State Duma Committee on Ecology, Vladimir Burmatov, and even actress Pamela Anderson, publicly spoke out.

Recently, the South Sakhalin City Court found illegal permits to catch killer whales in 2018, Sledky opened a criminal case. Public organizations have expressed distrust in the investigator who is leading the case of "whale prisons." Activists will petition to the head of the Sledkom of Russia Alexander Bastrykin about the personal control of this criminal case. He will also be asked to take urgent measures to set the animals free.
