Burmatov added that commercial animal husbandry should be regulated at the legislative level.
“The goal is to have a bill submitted to the State Duma in 2023 that will make it possible to put things in order in this area as well. Nowadays, people buy animals from breeders, but in fact they are not breeders, but people who randomly cross animals and have no responsibility,” he said.
The animals that such breeders cannot sell end up joining the army of the homeless, the deputy said.
