Psittacosaurus fossil finds celebrated with sculpture and  signs at Shestakovo in Kemerovo region of Siberia; with mention of new mammal (symmetrodont) find (in Russian) 

http://gazeta.a42.ru/lenta/show/dinozavryi-kiya-kedrovaya-roscha-ekskursiya-vyihodnogo-dnya.html


Roughly translating:
"Now we are on the edge of the ocean, that was here 150 million years ago.... In 2015, at a depth of about two meters, we found a rare find - a well-preserved mammal lower jaw, a contemporary of the dinosaurs. In addition, it's hypothesized that a fragment  of the skeleton of this ancient animal was also found. If it is confirmed that the bones of the skeleton and mandible belong to a mammal from the beginning of the Cretaceous Period, it will be Russia's first discovery of so much of the skeleton of ancient mammals from the territory of our country "  - said the head of the group of paleontologists Natalia Demidenko .
