Rosselkhoznadzor in the St. Petersburg and Leningrad region blocked the pig carcasses from Germany in the sea port of St Petersburg because the products came with a refrigerator, excluded from the Register of enterprises entitled to carry controlled goods into the country.

On 1 November, Rosselkhoznadzor in the Tver and Pskov regions stopped a consignment of pigs from Denmark because they did not have the correct veterinary certification.
