Importation of birds and poultry products from the German federal state of Bavaria has been allowed by Ukraine's State Veterinary and Phytosanitary Service, as stated by the authority.
The State Veterinary Service has declared stale resolution No.15-3-1-18/1282, issued by the chief state veterinary medicine inspector on March 19, 2009, prohibiting importation of such products.
The ban has been lifted since absence of more new cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza on the territory of Bavaria.
