Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin’s orders for deciding the fate of killer whales and beluga whales from the “whale prison” in Primorye are not executed. The authorities are going to analyze in which part of the order of the head of state were ignored. About it сообщает RIA News.

Ранеесообщалосьthat the owner of the "whale prison", the general director of the company "Afalina" Alexei Reshetov does not intend to release animals into the wild. He claims that marine mammals are his property. “What release can we talk about if the animals are my property?” I did not make a decision on release, and I am not going to. All statements about a release remain on the conscience of those who make them, ”he said. Alexey Reshetov also threatened journalists with lawsuits if something happened to his business.

“We also heard with surprise today these statements by a representative or owner of a company that was engaged in catching. We mean now, let's say, to refresh in the memory of the list of instructions given by the president, ”Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

At the moment, in Primorye, there is a trial on a lawsuit from zoodefenders. Environmentalists dispute the decision of Rosrybolovstvo to allocate quotas for catching killer whales and beluga whales in 2018, and also point to the inaction of Rosprirodnadzor in deciding on the removal and release of marine mammals to freedom.
