MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Russian Minister of Natural Resources and Environment Sergey Donskoy is planning to meet with Hollywood actress and animal rights activist Pamela Anderson next week to discuss the future of the Amur leopard, he said on Wednesday.
"She plans to come in early December, if I am not mistaken," Donskoy said. "She has lots of questions here. I am set to go to the Paris conference but I think I have a chance to meet her before the Paris session."
According to the minister, Kremlin chief of staff Sergey Ivanov may also attend the meeting. "I think we will get together," Donskoy said.
Donskoy and Anderson previously met at the Eastern Economic Forum held in Vladivostok, Russia’s Far East, this September.
In July, the actress sent a letter to President Vladimir Putin asking him to block the passage of the Winter Bay cargo vessel through the Northern Sea Route. The vessel was reportedly carrying more than 1,700 tons of whale meat from Iceland to Japan. Later Anderson asked for a meeting with Putin to discuss environmental issues with him.
Anderson has Russian roots on her mother’s side. Her great grandmother was Russian, she emigrated from Russia to the Netherlands and then to Canada.
