According to the Rosselkhoznadzor, due to the deterioration of the epizootic situation in several European Union countries (cases of blue tongue and the appearance of the Schmallenberg virus) and in the absence of adequate security controls of animal feed by competent services of the European Commission, starting today March 20th, Russia bans all imports of cattle, sheep and pigs from EU countries.

According to European Commission authorities, the measure is excessive and disproportionate.

The Federal Agency may also prohibit imports of pork from the EU. Russia indicated that, despite their repeated requests that the EU strengthen control of shipments of this product, they continue to violate the Russian sanitary and veterinary standards, detecting residues of harmful substances and bacterial contamination, noting also the information required by veterinary certificates do not match those indicated on the packaging of exported products. Therefore, the agency in has invited representatives from relevant departments of the European Commission to Moscow in order to analyze the situation of Russian exports of live animals and pork, and also to discuss the safety of Russian shipments of feed made from animal protein.
