Россия приостановит импорт европейских животных из-за болезней


Distribution in Europe the next epidemic among animals compels domestic veterinary service to close border for their deliveries to Russia. As a result the country will lose 3 thousand t of meat a month. However it is noncritical, experts are sure — domestic cattle breeders promise to increase a production.
On Friday the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance declared a suspension since March 20 of deliveries to Russia live large and a small cattle, and also pigs from Europe. These measures are accepted because of several flashes in countries of Western Europe of the disease caused by a virus of Shmallenberg, and also distribution of other virus — bluetang, is told in the message of the Russian veterinary service.
The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance invited to Moscow representatives of European Commission for discussion of the created situation and already today hopes to receive the answer, the press secretary of Russian department Alexey Alekseenko declared daily RBC.
Now the European countries deliver to Russia generally breeding cattle and live pigs, the head of executive committee of National meat association Sergey Yushin speaks. However the current volumes of deliveries essentially it is less than what went several years ago, it makes a reservation.
For example, last year a monthly import of live pigs on slaughter made 4 — 5 thousand heads, or about 3 thousand t of meat in lethal weight. Such volumes can't render special influence on the Russian market, Mr. Yushin is sure. In 2012 the gain of a domestic production in a pig distribution is expected at level of 150 — 200 thousand t. In 2011 in Russia about 2,4 million tons of meat in lethal weight were made.
But from Europe also there are deliveries of breeding cattle of the dairy direction, Mr. Yushin notes. «But also in this case it is necessary to estimate, in what quantity the Russian dairy enterprises» were bought in Europe — the expert adds. Last year volumes of deliveries of the European breeding cattle were less in comparison with 2007 — 2008 when hundreds thousands beasts were bought. Mr. Alekseenko specified that an import of breeding cattle from Europe will proceed at the strengthened veterinary control.
