UKRAINE & BRAZIL - Ukraine has lifted its ban on Brazilian poultry imports.

Ukraine has lifted a ban on the import of poultry and products made of it from Brazil, which was imposed in August 2000 and prolonged several times because of reports of cases of Newcastle disease in that country.

Kyiv Post reports that the import of Brazilian poultry is allowed as of 14 December, according to Ukraine's state veterinary medicine committee.

The ban was lifted in connection with the report by the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) that Brazil is now free of the disease.
