The owner of killer whales and belugas, who are now in the “whale prison” in Primorye, does not plan to release animals voluntarily. He claims that the mammals contained there are his property.

The general director of the company Afalina, which owns killer whales and beluga whales, Alexei Reshetov at the trial, said that he had not made any decisions about releasing animals. According to him, any other questions concerning these mammals can be resolved only after they have been deprived of their ownership rights.

“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, ”said Alexei Reshetov.

He called media reports about the release of killer whales and beluga whales and said that if something happened to his business, he would bring journalists to justice through the court for providing false information.

Today, in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, consideration has begun of a lawsuit by zoo defenders on the release of killer whales and beluga whales from the "whale prison." Environmentalists dispute the decision of the Federal Agency for Fishery to allocate quotas for catching these animals in 2018, as well as the inaction of Rosprirodnadzor in deciding on the removal of mammals and their release.
