28.09.12.Deystviya Russian authorities under the control of African swine fever (ASF) has recently caused an uproar among Russian farmers and experts. It is noted that the authorities use the illness as an excuse to rob farmers of their farms.
"The critical situation related to the massive spread of African swine fever in the Volgograd region, makes you wonder about, or sloppiness or a deliberate diversion from the commercial overtones. I assume that it is beneficial to those who are close to power and has no business in this field. Many deputies of the regional legislature, for example, has so far managed to get the best government loans for their farms, and their pig was not touched. "- Said the first deputy chairman of the Duma Committee on Constitutional Legislation Alexander Ageev.
"This plague suspiciously jumping on the field like mad — over 200 miles to the south, after another 200 miles to the north, etc. It is unclear who takes her in such numbers and with such speed. And everyone started to wonder whether it is not nonsense dog that there is no plague, there is simply a desire to exterminate some pig population in the backyard to the meat market was not, he said. In the end price of a kilo of pork in the market, followed by the beef and lamb jumped almost doubled. "- Commented one of the local farmers.
"Buy a pig is three thousand, and we are a 10-pound pay only 860 rubles. As a result, many owners often long refused to let the veterinary services and the police in their farms, which often leads to conflict. "- Adds farmer Yuri Tarabanovsky.
The press service of the governor Sergey Bozhenov called "commercial" version of the ASF is "fiction."
"Unfortunately, when such disasters occur, they are always accompanied by rumors that it suits all" unjust "power," witch "and other external enemies. Unfortunately, people who have had heavy losses, a loss often believe it "- the report says.
