RUSSIA, Moscow. Russia filed an appeal against the decision of the World Trade Organization (WTO) pertaining to the ban on pork supplies from the European Union due to the African Swine Fever (ASF), Ministry of Economic Development said.
"Despite the positive decision on Latvia, Russia disagrees with the decision of the Panel for the most part. About 2,500 infection sources of the African Swine Fever were registered in Baltic countries and Poland in less than 24 month; the epizootic situation continues deteriorating. This evidences inefficiency of measures taken by EU competent authorities to eliminate spots and provide proper protection," the Ministry said.
