MOSCOW, October 6. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance (Rosselkhoznadzor) introduced temporary restrictions on supplies of live pigs, pork and raw pork products, as well as wild boar meat from Moldova from October 6. This decision was made due to an outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) in the country, the watchdog said in a report on Thursday.
Rosselkhoznadzor also restricted the import of all kinds of feed and feed additives for pigs, with the exception of feed additives obtained by means of chemical and microbiological synthesis and feeding stuffs that undergone heat treatment, as well as used equipment for keeping, slaughter and butchering of pigs.
"Temporary restrictions will be also applied to the transit of live pigs from the Republic of Moldova through the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as to the transit of live pigs through the territory of Moldova to the consignees in the Russian Federation", the report said.
Rosselkhoznadzor also asked Moldova’s National Agency for the Safety of foodstuffs to provide detailed information on the measures taken to localize of pest spots of ASF and prevent its further spread in the country.
