28-02-2011 | | |

The Russian veterinary services have also reported outbreaks of Classical Swine Fever (CSF) to the Organization for Animal Health (OIE).

Outbreaks were recorded in game husbandry, called ‘Znamenskoye’ in Ugransky, the Smolenskaya Oblast, located west of Moscow near the border with Belarus. The disease was found in nine wild boars.

Apart from CSF, Russia reports ongoing outbreaks of African Swine Fever. Both diseases are similar in name and clinical signs, but have a different viral origin.
