The Russian Federation filed a notice of appeal on 23 September in the case brought by the European Union “Russian Federation – Measures on the Importation of Live Pigs, Pork and Other Pig Products from the European Union” (DS475).

On August 19th, a World Trade Organisation (WTO) panel declared illegal the Russian import ban on live pigs, fresh pork and other pig products from the EU in the light of international trade rules. The panel acknowledged that Russia's refusal to accept imports of certain EU products and to adapt EU-Russia import certificates accordingly amounts to an EU-wide import ban. This measure is not based on the relevant international standards and violates the rules of the WTO Agreement on the Application of Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (the SPS Agreement).
