According to the data published by the Russian state news agency "RIA Novosti" at the end of November, the annual costs due to African swine fever (ASF) outbreaks in Russia in 2016 exceeded 1,200 million rubles, that’s 12.6 times more than in 2015, when the losses amounted to 96.3 million rubles. The total compensation paid is calculated according to the average payment of 75 rubles/kg live weight at an average weight of 65 kg/pig.

The increased is explained by the growing number of private farms, where uncontrolled ASF outbreaks appear more frequently, as the owners are careless in applying the control regulations, leading to a higher rate of spread of the disease.

During the third quarter of 2016, the number of pigs slaughtered due to the disease in all Russia has increased by 7.1% in comparison with the same period in 2015.
