It is on the basis of the information contained in the Warning Bulletin issued by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) No. 26969 dated 6/10/1439 (20/6/2018), which reports the emergence of highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5) in this region.
The only exception of the temporary ban on poultry meat, table eggs and their products is if they are thermally treated or in any other way that can eliminate the avian influenza virus, and the certificate should be issued by the official bodies of the Republic of Russia.
This temporary ban continues until the health status of livestock is stabilized.
