EU - Russia has been given permission to resume poultry exports to EU countries, the head of the Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Control Service (Rosselkhoznadzor) Sergei Dankvert told the Interfax news agency. The European Commission banned poultry exports from Russia on 17 August due to the bird flu outbreak in the central and eastern parts of the country. Dankvert said that representatives of EU veterinary services on Tuesday evening voted in favour of introducing a system in which poultry exports would not banned from the country as a whole, but just from the regions where bird flu was registered, the agency reported. <i>Source: Just-Food.com</i>
