Russia, which is banning imports of live cattle from EU countries from March 20, may also ban imports of European pork.

Russian food safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor has told its European colleagues that pork supplies need to be discussed because of "the continued breach of Russian veterinary and sanitary standard. Rosselkhoznadzor invited its European colleagues to Moscow next week to explain the situation surrounding imports of live cattle and meat.

"Despite our repeated requests to sort out supply controls, the breaches continue so there could be a ban on pork imports," the service said. Monitoring of pork from EU countries has shown residues of harmful substances and bacteria. Often the data shown on veterinary certificates and packaging is different.
