Commissioner for Food Health and Safety Vytenis P. Andriukaitis, representatives of the Ministries and competent authorities of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldavia and Ukraine participated in the meeting. The Russian Federation was represented by Advisor to the Head of Rosselkhoznadzor Nikita Lebedev. OIE Deputy Director General Jean-Philippe Dop and other representatives of the European Food Safety Authority also took part in the meeting.

The main purpose of the meeting was to exchange information on ASF spread, as well as to define ASF control measures taken by the countries and prevent disease introduction in order to coordinate cooperative effort and develop a common approach. It should be mentioned that some countries (Lithuania, Poland) provide financial award to hunters for delivery of wild boar carcasses. This practice helps to quickly remove and dispose carcasses from the environment, and provides full data on number of dead animals.

The RF representative emphasized in his report that in spite of results declared by the European colleagues the disease continues to spread extensively and there is lack of unified approach to the disease control. Reversed virus introduction in the territory of ASF-free bordering RF Subjects may cause a new wave of infection in these territories. In order to prevent this situation in the Russian Federation it is recommended by the Ordinance of the RF Government to maintain a wild boar-free buffer zone along Russia’s western border. This approach was supported by the representatives of Poland who informed that they will soon start maintaining a buffer zone on the border with Ukraine and Belarus, as well as by representatives of Latvia who proposed taking joint measures on wild boar population control.
