The Ukraine has lifted the 2007 ban it imposed on pork meat and poultry from Russia in accordance with the health disease risks.

There has been a significant decline in pigs with Classical Swine Fever at the end of the year. However, the ban on the import of pork from Volokolamsky and Lotoshinsky districts remains restricted.

A decrease in the number of domestic birds infected by the H5N1 virus (bird flu) in the Moscow area has been recorded. The virus was first reported in February 2007.
