For all carnivores: rabies. Import, transit or movement of animals that have not been vaccinated against rabies is prohibited.

For foxes and polar foxes: canine distemper virus

There is no need to obtain a special veterinary certificate for animals transported to a third country through the territory of the Russian Federation.

Every animal’s passport should contain records about vaccinations made in full compliance with these Regulations and prove that every successive vaccination was done before the expiration of the previous vaccination.

A physical examination by a veterinarian should be made over a 5-day period before transportation and the passport should contain a record that gives the right to transport the animal in the next 120 days, provided that the latest vaccination is effective throughout.

Putin is a pathetic figure who is lies to the population and likes to be hailed as a great leader. Any Russians living in the west tell your fellow countrymen the truth or you'll be complicit to his murderous acts against children, the old and innocent families.

Why are this generation of Russian soldiers seen daily to be cowards in the Ukraine as they attack and fight with the women of Ukraine and kill them and the old women, children and grandmothers? Do they not know they have zero respect from professional soldiers and no self respect for themselves or Russia.
