Russia to tighten pig keeping rules, disease a concern
In order to fight African swine fever in the country, Russia's agriculture ministry is pushing for more stringent rules for breeding and transporting of pigs.
Unauthorised transportation monitored
The ministry further stated that in order to combat the disease, stricter measures to monitor and prevent unauthorised transportation of animals will need to be a reality.
Also, transport pigs without permission and closed-door breeding farms will be under scrutiny and be a focus.
Yelena Skrynnik, Agriculture Minister, has recently held talks with members of an interdepartmental commission regarding the measures and prevention of African swine fever outbreaks in the Rostov, Stavropol regions and also St. Petersburg.
