On the request of the Polish delegation the Agriculture Council took note on the latest developments on the African swine fever (ASF) situation in the EU. Several member states supported this delegation stressing the need for the EU to provide Ukraine with financial support to control ASF in its territory and prevent the spread of the disease to the EU. Several cases of ASF in wild boars and domestic pigs have recently been recorded in Ukraine. A number of delegations highlighted that some other foreign countries sharing a common border with the EU should also be provided with a financial support.

The Polish delegation considered also that the recent extension of the areas in Poland subject to restrictions due to ASF is unjustified, due to the stable situation of the disease and the control measures adopted by the authorities.

The Commission confirmed that it was ready to finance prevention and control of the ASF in Ukraine as long as a strategy is presented by this country. For the extension of areas restricted due to ASF, the Commission confirmed that if followed the rules established for the eradication of this contagious disease.
