Russia's veterinary service says the Ukraine should take measures to protect itself from African Swine Fever spreading from Russia. It suggests the Ukraine created a "sterile zone" on the border with Russia.

The width of the sterile zone should be about 60 miles and within the zone there should be no backyard pigs kept in the open.

There have been 27 registered outbreaks of African Swine Fever in Russia this year, 16 of them at private households. In 2010 the numbers were 60 and 33 respectively.

In 2010, 37,567 wild boars were shot, 14 of which were infected with the virus. This year 31,478 wild boars have been shot — 232 of them infected with African Swine Fever.
