The Ukrainian State Veterinary and Phytosanitary Service suspended the activity of their territorial offices in a number of districts and cities of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts. In this light, the service also prohibited to import animal products from these territories to other regions of Ukraine.
As the SVPS reports, the according order #2829 on September 25 was signed by the deputy head of the service V.V.Bashynsky.
“The document orders the heads of territorial offices of the Ukrainian State Veterinary and Phytosanitary Service, which continue carrying out their duties in the oblasts and districts of the country, to ensure state veterinary sanitary control over the transportation of the cargos subject to the state veterinary medical service and not allow into circulation the cargos from territories where the work of state veterinary bodies had been suspended,” says the report.
“We are forced to prevent the transportation of controlled cargo… to the territory of free Ukraine,” says the letter of the deputy head of the service sent to veterinary medicine specialists, “who work in conditions of temporary occupation or terrorist threat.”
Ukraine is also practically forced to refuse exporting such goods, says Bashynsky’s letter.
“After this order… all trade partner states where Ukraine used to supply controlled goods will be warned about the impossibility of providing approved guarantees on part of the SVPS,” the letter notes.
