Russia: Russia Lifts Avian Influenza Restrictions

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On February 20, 2017, the Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation (Rosselkhoznadzor) issued instruction No. FS-NV-7/3749 lifting restrictions imposed in 2014-2015 after an outbreak of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in the United States. The document does not mention HPAI specifically, but the cancelled instructions contained therein include all HPAI related bans which therefore become null and void. This report outlines conditions for the import of affected commodities to the Russian Federation and through Russia to the Republic of Kazakhstan. Note: Due to the Government of Russia’s counter sanctions, U.S. poultry meat and products are still not eligible for import into Russia.
