The decision is probably related to the death of a bird from influenza on January 18 at the Khutor BCP in the Vinnytsia region. The ministry assured that as of January 23, all the birds in the epizootic foci had been killed by the humane bloodless method, measures to carry out disinfection work had begun.
On January 29, as part of the Ukraine-EU Association Council, the Ukrainian side urged European partners to localize the ban by nearby villages around the identified foci of infection.
On January 23, the State Service for Food Safety and Consumer Protection of Ukraine announced the EU’s decision to suspend the import of poultry meat from Ukraine.
