“Business Duty Officer” expands horizons on the fields of KazanSummit

18 May 2023 year experts “business officer” took part in the session “In the footsteps of the snow leopard: Disappearance and Restoration of Rare Animal Species” within the framework of the XIV International Forum “Russia – Islamic World: Kazan Forum», which is held in federal status for the first time.

“Today, the trend towards harmonization of relations between wild animals and humans is coming to the fore., tougher penalties for poaching and illegal business, creation of a system of rehabilitation and reintroduction. However, legal issues remain on the agenda.”, – emphasized the Ambassador of the Expert Analytical Alliance.

Firstly, the relevant legislation is dominated by documents of a programmatic and strategic nature, not adequately regulating many issues. One side, we are talking about strict liability for committing crimes in the field of animal protection, on the other hand, there are threats of holding real rehabilitation centers liable.

Secondly, it seems appropriate “to define the conceptual and categorical apparatus of four federal laws, that govern the rescue, rehabilitation and reintroduction of wild animals (No. 498-FZ "On the responsible treatment of animals and on amendments to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation", No. 52-FZ "On the animal world", No. 209-FZ "On hunting and the conservation of hunting resources and on amendments to certain legislative acts of the Russian Federation" and No. 166-FZ "On fishing and the conservation of aquatic biological resources"), as well as to exclude from the disposition of Art.. 258.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation for actions of an urgent nature by conscientious animal rights activists", says Ekaterina Avdeeva. The issue of owner liability also deserves special attention., traders and purchasers of wild animals in connection with the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 22 June 2019 y. N 795 "On approval of the list of animals, prohibited for content".
The key thesis was the issue of introducing the status of "Rescued Animal" into the scope of the current Federal Law No. 498-FZ and the "Center for Rescue and Rehabilitation" with subdivision into categories depending on the planned subsequent reintroduction or without it, with placement in a nursery, shelter or other suitable place for keeping. This will allow to preserve and increase the number of especially valuable objects of the animal world., it is necessary to organize systematic work to improve legislation and resolve conflict situations, associated with the removal of such animals for treatment and subsequent release into their natural habitat.

The solution announced at KazanForum lies in the plane of interdepartmental cooperation with the participation of public associations and the scientific community. We stand for balance, the complexity and accessibility of the proposed legislative initiatives. Инициативы прорабатываются в открытом диалоге государства и общества, together with the Federation Council and the Institute of Legislation and Comparative Law.
