The ban goes into effect on April 7, 2014 and will remain in force until the inspections of Polish and Lithuanian meat production enterprises, which will be differentiated on a regional basis, are conducted.
Earlier, a ban on imports of pork to Russia from all EU countries had been imposed (on January 30, 2014) in connection with an outbreak of African pig plague on the territory of the European Union.
The Russian Federal Service for Veterinary Supervision had earlier criticized Polish and Lithuanian meat producers for using technologies which made it possible to substitute the ingredients; for instance, products labeled as processed poultry might contain some pork. The Russian agency expressed concern that thermal meat processing might not always be effective to destroy the virus of the African pig plague, which was fraught with the threat that the virus would be brought to the territory of the Russian Federation.
