Zoos and circuses included in the list of affected industries
The Russian government included zoos, dolphinariums, aquariums and circuses in the list of coronavirus-affected industries. They will be able to count on federal support.
As stated at a meeting of the presidium of the coordinating council to combat the spread of coronavirus in Russia, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, many zoos, dolphinariums and circuses, including private ones, were on the verge of survival. They do not have funds for the maintenance of animals, so it is necessary to support them.
The head of government asked the regional authorities to pay attention to this problem and support such organizations. He asked the Russian Ministry of Culture, together with the constituent entities of the Russian Federation, to monitor and work out additional measures to support and create conditions for the careful keeping of animals.
The Minister of Culture Olga Lyubimova has already appealed to regional authorities with a request to provide information on the amount of necessary financial support for private circuses and zoos. She also requested the development of regional support programs for such organizations.
