With the help of new equipment and training, the Ukrainian pork sector is taking further steps to enhance its monitoring and containment of African swine fever (ASF).
In recent years, ASF – a deadly swine disease not transmittable to humans – has put the Ukrainian pork sector at risk, and with it the food security and livelihoods of many within the country. Since 2012, there have been 326 registered outbreaks of the disease. The spread of ASF in Ukraine has already led to serious socio-economic consequences; while the country has taken steps to eradicate the disease, domestic meat markets are being negatively affected.

FAS USDA 09/11/15 UKRAINE - Livestock and Products Report (concerne notamment l'ASF et PEDv) PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-000974-13 Threat from African swine fever. In recent months information has been reaching Europe about the threat to pig farms posed by African swine fever (ASF), which is caused by the African swine fever virus.
No vaccine is currently being produced against ASF so the only means of tackling the disease is to eliminate infected herds. To date, the disease has occurred mainly in Africa and, sporadically, in South America. The only cases in the European Union have been in Sardinia. The highest-risk area for ASF has so far not extended to any EU countries. However, in recent years the disease has appeared close to the EU’s borders, in Russia and Ukraine. According to FAO data from 2011, in Russia alone some 300 000 pigs were slaughtered as a result of ASF.

BLOOMBERG 02/08/12 Ukraine Reports Its First Outbreak of African Swine Fever. Ukraine reported its first outbreak of the deadly pig disease African swine fever, the World Organisation for Animal Health reported, citing a notification by the country’s Ministry of Agricultural Policy.
The illness, which is harmless to people, was found in three backyard pigs that died from a herd of five in the country’s east, according to the notice published online today by the Paris-based animal-health organization, known by its French acronym OIE. The disease is caused by a virus for which there is no vaccine and has killed thousands of pigs in Russia. The fever may have been introduced in the region in 2007 when swine at a dump in the Black Sea port of Poti ate garbage from a ship, according to the United Nations’ Food & Agriculture Organization.
Authorities are carrying out “a full range of measures to eradicate the outbreak,” the OIE wrote. Those include culling of pigs, quarantine measures and movement controls, according to the notice. FAO 21/08/12 L’apparition de la peste porcine africaine en Ukraine, un avertissement. Vérification de l'état de santé d'un cochonnet 21 août 2012, Rome - Suite à la détection pour la première fois en Ukraine de la peste porcine africaine, la FAO avertit qu'en dépit des mesures de lutte qui semblent avoir enrayé provisoirement la diffusion de cette maladie animale, celle-ci a pris pied dans le Caucase et pose un risque pour les zones voisines.
En plus de quelques parties de l'Ukraine, les pays voisins comme la Moldavie, le Kazakhstan et la Lettonie - qui ont de grandes populations de porcs élevés dans des basse-cours ou des fermes à gestion familiale, souvent avec de faibles protocoles de biosécurité - sont maintenant à risque élevé d'introduction de la maladie. «Les autorités nationales et locales dans toute la région devraient intensifier leurs mesures de prévention et être prêtes à réagir en cas d'apparition de nouveaux foyers», souligne M.
Juan Lubroth, vétérinaire en chef de la FAO. Détection précoce, réaction rapide. PIG PROGRESS 02/04/14 Ukraine and Slovakia to join efforts to combat ASF. Representatives of Slovakia and Ukraine recently discussed the possibility of joint measures to fight African Swine Fever (ASF) at the border areas and agreed to work together on measures to stop the spread of the virus.
This was discussed at the meeting of the Slovakian Consul General in the Zakarpatie region, Ukraine with Janko Burianovoy and chief of the Department of the Veterinary Medicine of the Zakarpatie region, Yuri Sadvari. FAO 10/11/14 Ukraine gains expertise in diagnosing African swine fever. As African swine fever spreads rapidly through Eastern Europe and now threatens to make inroads to the west, a cohort of Ukrainian lab technicians are now trained in the latest and most effective methods for diagnosing the disease and containing the epidemic.
African swine fever is a viral disease that causes high fevers and hemorrhaging in pigs and wild boars. There is no vaccine or treatment and most infected animals die within days. Scientists, government officials and farmers are alarmed as the epidemic has already killed hundreds of thousands of pigs in Russian Federation and the Caucasus and has now spread to the Baltic region. While the disease poses no danger to human health or to other animals, it threatens the entire European swine industry, jeopardizing livelihoods, food security and nutrition.
In Kiev, FAO epidemiologists and livestock experts updated local lab technicians on the status of the contagious disease in Ukraine and Europe. OIE – Notifications 2014 concernant la peste porcine africaine en Ukraine.
