All citizens whose animals were removed will receive compensation at the rate of 156 rubles per kilogram of live weight.

As a preventive measure, quarantine zones have been organized around the villages where an outbreak of ASF is detected - the first zone is 20 km, settlements where animals are slaughtered, the second zone - the observation zone - 100 km, where blood is taken from the pig herd and research is carried out on the presence of the African plague virus. Until the quarantine is lifted, the transportation, import and export of pigs and any pork products from settlements is strictly prohibited.
