According to SoyaNews agency with reference to Interfax, the Department of Veterinary and Food Supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Belarus has banned the import of live pigs, pork, including wild boar meat, and other pig products from Adygea and the Stavropol Territory since December 20. Limitations are associated with the unfavorable epizootic situation of African swine fever in these regions of the Russian Federation.

All permits for the export of pig-breeding products to the Republic of Belarus, previously issued to the farms of Adygea and the Stavropol Territory, are temporarily suspended.
