One Russian company whose name is not published for 2 years imported into the country 5 declared parties of primates as animals for circuses and zoo gardens. Everything was done with the necessary documents (vet. certificates and permits from Rosselkhoznadzor). They brought monkeys from Vietnam. About 300 individuals were imported, for which they paid 8.5 million rubles.
A recent check showed that monkeys were not used as live exhibits, but as material for illegal experiments.
