"An analysis of the epizootic situation in the Primorsky Territory showed that the probable cause of ASF virus entry into the region is the cross-border movement of infected boars from the territory of the PRC," RIA Novosti reports.

As the department added, the reason for the infection of domestic pigs in the farm of the Border District was a gross violation of the rules for keeping animals.

The authorities of the Primorsky Territory in early August introduced an emergency mode in the Border region of the region due to the discovery of African swine fever in one of the farms.

It was previously reported that Russia and Belarus tightened control over EU products due to ASF.
