Moscow, September 19. /ITAR-TASS/ Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered to allot 15 million roubles from the presidential reserve fund in 2013 to the Rehabilitation Centre for Tigers and Other Rare Species. As stated in the order published on official portal of legal information, the funds are allocated for “the maintenance of Amur tigers in order to ensure their return back to the wild, the purchase of equipment and construction of necessary infrastructure”.

Yuri Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister of Russia and Presidential Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, is authorized to ensure that the funds are being spent for the intended purposes.

On September 1, Vladimir Putin visited the Rehabilitation Centre for Tigers and Other Rare Species. The President asked about the current level of funding for the Centre and wondered how much money is required for its smooth operation.

  1. You will do a great work by given 15 Million rubles for the Reserve Fund to Tiger Rehibilitation and other rae species. Thank you for doing that!!

  2. Центр реабилитации диких животных УТЕС едва выживает ,а государство крайне мало делает . Пока есть только разговоры и неизвестно куда делись миллионы ,выделенные на амурских тигров 2-3 года назад ,из которых 1 миллион был пожертвован Бредом Питом.
