The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision applauds steps of Ukraine on controlling the outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) and does not intend to impose additional restrictions on the import of products from Ukraine, the official website of the Federal Service reported.

"We approve the restrictive measures that you have taken regarding the current circumstances, and therefore we do not intend to establish additional restrictive measures. The territorial administrations of the Federal Service are informed in a proper manner about the imposition of specified restrictions by your side, and they are instructed to monitor its implementation," a letter of the deputy head of the Federal Service Nikolai Vlasov to the chairman of the Ukrainian Service Volodymyr Horzheyev said.

In this letter, the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Supervision thanked the Ukrainian Veterinary Service for the information on imposition of restrictions on the export of animals and their products from Zaporizhye region.

In addition, Vlasov asked Horzheyev to continue informing the Russian side about the situation of ASF in Ukraine and wished him luck and success "in the fight against this dangerous disease."

As reported, the Federal Service obliged the territorial administrations to conduct a full veterinary examination of goods coming from Ukraine by all means of transport in order to prevent the import of pork products to Russia from Zaporizhye region.
