UAE imposed ban on imports of Eggs and meat products from Russia

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has imposed a ban on the import of all species including eggs, meat and meat products from Russia.

The step taken by the UAE authorities is a precautionary measure in response to the wave of bird flu (H5N2) at a farm in the central region of Kostromskaya Oblast, which at least led 660,000 birds to the death.

The Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MoCCAE) has also imposed restrictions on the import of species of domestic and wild live birds from the affected region and from the provinces which were affected previously.

“We have taken these steps to prevent the bird flu virus and virus-related risks and impacts on the country’s poultry health and safety, in addition to protecting public health,” said Dr. Majid Sultan Al Qassimi, Assistant Undersecretary for Food Diversity Sector at the MoCCAE.
