Putin Announces Tougher Penalties For Animal Cruelty In Russia
Kremlin Legislative initiative aimed at increasing penalties
Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced that he stands with those who oppose for Animal cruelty in Russia.
There will be a legislative initiative which is aimed at increasing penalties for Animal abuse, according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
This is not the first time Putin has stood within the ethics of Animals, last year he gave his annual address and presented plans for Russia to be an “Organic Superpower’.
Sputniknews reports: On Saturday, a rally against the animal cruelty was held in Moscow, demanding the introduction of stronger punishments under article 245 of the Criminal Code. The rally took place after two young women suspected of extreme animal cruelty were arrested in Russia’s Khabarovsk Krai.
Peskov added that the issue of strengthening responsibility for committing crimes against animals through endorsing legislative amendments should be addressed by experts in the relevant area and legislative bodies.
