I added info about the species, referenced: this is very wide-spread (anywhere but America). Also accorded to some other data, butterfly mentioned in Ukraine, the Crimea (didn't add that though).
The pupae origin is hard to guess, they rather were brought from Southwest Asia to Moscow (common thing, they come for further sale) :)

Folks please don't be scared!) Dmitry, you're right! Usually I always mention home-raised. And tell where pupae are from. This time chrysippus wasn't presented to me personally, but moved to me for nurture) I was going to elaborate and forgot) Can't even say where the pupae are from, couldn't help but shoot such a beauty.

Maybe worth adding that it's home-raised, not naturally? Not to scare folks ;)
