MOSCOW, November 7. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin supports the idea of tightening responsibility for cruelty to animals, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.
"The president thinks such a legislative initiative would have the right to exist," he told journalists when asked about Putin’s opinion about animal rights activists’ motions.
"Naturally, the president shares the idea that cruelty to animals is inadmissible. He sides with those who are against it," he said, adding that it is up to experts and lawmakers to advance a relevant legislative initiative. He reminded that this topic had already been discussed with the head of state.
However, in his words, the program of the Year of Ecology to be held in Russia in 2017 features no such topic.
