Touring circuses exploiting animals have been prohibited from operating in Ukraine's capital Kyiv.
Animal rights activists from the UAnimals public movement on Tuesday praised the Kyiv District Administrative Court's (KDAC) ruling on the lawsuit filed by representatives of touring circuses. The report says the lawsuit was dismissed.
“Today, the court confirmed the legitimacy of the KDAC decision to ban touring circuses with animals in Kyiv. Circus lobbyists abandoned their attempts to have this torture return to Kyiv,” the activists wrote on 19 March.
