In districts bordering with Belarus and the Russian Federation, trade in live pigs, exhibitions of pigs, fairs and other events were also prohibited by the imposed Order. The state control of trade of animal products, raw materials, feeds and their additives in marketplaces was tightened, as well as the veterinary control of pigs place of storage was strengthened. Pig keepers and private veterinarians were warned of tightening of biological safety measures (eg. to keep the pigs outdoor forbidden). The plenipotentiary veterinarians and hunters are obliged to take more samples of pigs and boars to identify the African swine fever in districts, bordering with Belarus and the Russian Federation.
