Killer whale owner refuses to release sea animals from whale prison
Media reports about the release of killer whales in the wild; he calls this "a gallimatia."
Alexey Reshetov, the White Whale trapping company general director, said that he did not want to release animals voluntarily. “All rash statements about possible release remain on the conscience of those who make these statements,” he said. Media reports about the release of killer whales in the wild; he calls this "a gallimatia." Statements were made during the break in the court session of the South-Sakhalin City Court, where the claim of the Ekovahta Sakhalin public organization was considered, MK writes. Environmentalists asked to recognize orders approving quotas for fishing mammals last year illegal and to oblige Rosprirodnadzor to take away killer whales and beluga whales from the illegal owner. The court decided to reject the petition of the White Whale LLC, in which they ask to return a claim from Sakhalin environmentalists for the release of killer whales in the Bay of Central Primorye.
Recall that last year 100 killer whales and beluga whales were fished. In the future, marine animals would be sold in the Chinese aquariums. Mammals were placed in an adaptation center in Primorye, where they are kept in harsh conditions. After the intervention of the Prosecutor's Office, the company was prosecuted. In February, the President broke on and demanded an early resolution of the problem. Soon, Primorye Governor Oleg Kozhemyako announced a decision that all killer whales and beluga whales from the Medium Bay whale prison would be released into the ocean. At the end of March, French researcher Jean-Michel Cousteau arrived in Russia at the invitation of the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources. It was previously decided to release sea animals in the Sea of Okhotsk in June-July of this year.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
