In the Amur Region, for the first time, a quarantine strip will be established. It will pass through 11 municipalities along the state border along the Amur River. The measures were taken due to the unstable epizootic situation in China, where there are outbreaks of African swine fever (ASF) and rabies.

Due to the constant risk of introducing dangerous animal diseases from China, the regional veterinary department appealed to the Russian Ministry of Agriculture with a proposal to establish a quarantine strip. The federal agency supported the initiative.

According to the press service of the regional government, the quarantine strip will be 50 meters wide and 1 km long. Restrictions will affect residents of 250 border settlements. It is forbidden to keep and graze cattle, plant apiaries, mow hay and harvest feed for agricultural animals. Signs indicating the beginning of the buffer zone will begin to be installed in the near future.

Not a single large livestock enterprise of the region fell into the quarantine zone. In private farms, there are few cases of livestock in the buffer. For violation of the prohibitions Amur residents are fined - from 300 to 1 rubles. Animals in the restricted area will be sent to quarantine for two weeks.
