RUSSIA - The Russian veterinary service attended a meeting on the spread of African Swine Fever (ASF) in the Krasnodar region.

At the end of the meeting, it was concluded that the main reason for the spread of ASF in Krasnodar Territory was seen to be due to the non-compliance of farms with the IV compartment, biosafety regime.

Thefts of pigs and feed from farms have led to the introduction of ASF in the Krasnodar region.

The shooting of wild boars also was not quick enough to deal with the situation.
