Russia Round-up: Lawmakers, Media Cheer WCW Win Over Putin’s Animal Labs

14 April 2023 | Blog


Following a relentless White Coat Waste Project (WCW) campaign, cat dad President Joe Biden has defunded Putin’s cruel and wasteful kitten tests and ALL animal testing labs in Russia!

As far as we know, this is the first time ever that the U.S. government has defunded animal labs across an entire country!

The news spread like wildfire, with politicians and pundits celebrating this major win in the war on waste!

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle took to social media for a victory lap:

Reporters wrote about how WCW led the campaign to find, expose and defund Russian animal labs:

And our friends and coalition partners shared the good news, too:

We’re proud of this progress and our #WorldwideWaste campaign will continue to investigate and eviscerate cruel and wasteful taxpayer-funded animal testing labs around the world!
