RUSSIA - In 2011, the Moscow Region Prosecutor's Office with specialists from the Rosselkhoznadzor veterinary service visited 15 pig farms and two military farms in the region to verify compliance of veterinary legislation.

Enforcement activities should be carried out in accordance with the Plan of measures to prevent the spread and eradicate the virus of African swine fever (ASF) in the Russian Federation.

Virtually all companies admitted breaches of the "Veterinary Regulations for specialised hog enterprises", and the "animal health rules for collecting, recycling and disposal of biological waste".

One of the main shortcomings noted failure in the required amounts of diagnostic autopsy and sending of pathological material for laboratory exclusion of ASF.
