A meeting of the working group was held in Moscow at the Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the RAS named after Severtsov, which should decide the fate of killer whales and beluga whales from the “whale prison” in Primorye. Contrary to environmentalists' concerns, experts advised that animals should be produced not in the Primorye Territory, but in the Shantarsky District of the Sea of ​​Okhotsk and not in the near future, but from July to September.

The most convenient time transporting killer whales from the bay from the bay of the Middle scientists called the middle of July. Experts consider the release of animals in Primorye possible, but undesirable - too many risks for marine mammals. At the same time, scientists noted that if all animals fail to be released this summer, some can be released into their natural habitat in the 2020 year.

According to the All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography (VNIRO), it is now necessary to quickly give up feeding the animals with hands and introduce satellite and visual tags to killer whales and belugas.

On the eve of the meeting, the public organization Sakhalin Environmental Watch received information that animals are planning to be released in the period 18-20 May right on the spot - in the middle bay. According to the conclusion of international and Russian experts, this cannot be done — kosatki and belugas will not be able to find their own food, since they will be in an unusual environment, in unfamiliar conditions.
