I try to import Tor browser public key like this

gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 0x4E2C6E8793298290

but I get error

pubring.kbx': Provided object is too large

I use debian based distributive. How I can import public key ? Or where I can download Tor public key *.asc so I can

gpg --import tor-key.asc

This is probably caused by key spam - a few days ago this key took up about 30 MB and took about 10 minutes to delete. Suggested mitigation.
