CHENGDU - A pair of giant pandas took off in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, in a plane bound for Moscow on Monday.

Chinese researchers held a send-off ceremony for a pair of giant pandas, Ru Yi and Ding Ding, who will stay in Moscow for a 15-year collaborative research. This is the second time a pair of giant pandas from Sichuan have been sent to Moscow. In 1957, a pair of giant pandas from Baoxing County arrived at the Moscow Zoo.
