UAE lifts ban on Russian poultry products
A ban had been placed in 2019 after a bird flu outbreak.
UAE has lifted the ban on poultry products from Russia.
A brief alert posted on the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) website said that it had lifted the ban on all imports of live domestic and wild birds, ornamental birds, chicks and hatching eggs and their non-heat-treated by-products from Russia.
Earlier in 2019, UAE had banned poultry from certain areas of Russia based on a notification from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) of the outbreak of a highly pathogenic strain of bird flu, H5N2, in the region of ROSTOVSKAYA OBLAST in Russia.
The UAE had banned the import of all species of domestic and wild live birds, ornamental birds, chicks, hatching eggs, meats and meat products and non-heat-treated wastes from the affected region and from previously infected provinces (KURSKAYA OBLAST, ASTRAKHANSKAYA OBLAST, RESPUBLIKA KALMYKIYA, KOSTROMSKAYA OBLAST, VORONEZHSKAYA OBLAST) in the Russian Federation.
However, thermally-treated poultry products (meat and eggs) have been cleared for import from all parts of Russia.
The Russian Federation for Veterinary and Agricultural Supervision confirmed the lifting of the ban by UAE on Monday.
