President Vladimir Putin Announces Tougher Penalties For Animal Cruelty In Russia

While in South Africa it is perceived that the current authorities have to filter through mountains of red tape to change a regulation to help abused animals, our friends in Russia have a President that changed all that for their animals instantly.

Sputnik News and Neonettle reported this announcement on 7 November 2016 and even though we are very far away, on the tip of Africa, we would like to salute the Russian Government for making such a groundbreaking announcement to the world and their people.  We believe this will have a massive impact on many things, including their very cruel history of Circus Animal Abuse.  This is not only a victory for the animals in Russia, but also a victory for animals around the world.  Word is spreading and people are taking their blinkers off and for this we would like to thank every other person around the world who is making the effort to make the world a better place for all who share our planet.


Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced he stands with those who oppose for Animal cruelty in Russia. There may be the 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.

"Certainly, the president believes that such legislative initiative would have the right to exist, this is likely to be related to the position of the animal rights defenders, who oppose animal abuse. The president shares [the position of those who] stand against the cases of cruelty to animals and he is in full solidarity with those who oppose [the cruelty]," Peskov told journalists.

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.
