On August 1, two new laws entered into force in Russia at once, which relate to the production of animals included in the Red Book of Russia. In particular, it is allowed in exceptional cases to hunt rare animals. Environmentalists fear that such a rule will allow the law to be used to organize trophy hunting.

According to TASS, the Ministry of Natural Resources explained that hunting in exceptional cases is not included. However, it will be possible to get an animal, including a rare one, for monitoring, regulation of the number, protection of public health, and elimination of threats to human life. Also, such cases mean protection from mass diseases of agricultural and other domestic animals, ensuring the traditional way of life of indigenous peoples. The permit for the extraction of rare species will be issued by Rosprirodnadzor.

At the same time, Greenpeace expert, head of the program of the organization for specially protected natural areas of Russia Mikhail Kreindlin said on the air of the radio “Says Moscow»That such a law actually cancels the ban on shooting animals in the Red Data Book. He also noted that such "prey" can be used for trophy hunting, and the document itself contains many factors of corruption.
