Medvedev calls for more effective fight against African swine fever
TAMBOV. April 4 (Interfax) - The spread of African swine fever is a matter of concern and measures to combat its spread must be taken, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.
"There are of course plenty of problems for livestock farming. There are problems that we must all combat jointly. African swine fever, other especially dangerous diseases remain very serious threats for the sector," Medvedev said at a meeting with the heads of Russian livestock farming enterprises.
"Obviously, the regions need to raise the effectiveness of work to prevent outbreaks and spread of such diseases," he said.
"The fact that African swine fever has in essence spread beyond the Urals - outbreaks have already appeared in Siberia - this is a real problem," Medvedev said.
"The measures that need to be taken must be considered and a meeting needs to be held with the leaders of the regions and the people responsible for all these measures in Western and Eastern Siberia," he said.
Medvedev instructed Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich to think about the level at which this meeting should be organized, so that "the colleagues can appreciate their responsibility." Unlike in Central Russia, where this problem has been around a long time and where people have more or less learned how to combat it, for the Siberian regions "this is an entirely new story. This needs to be engaged with."

New U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Sullivan, who has recently started his mission in Moscow, has given an interview to Interfax in which he speaks about priorities of his work and assesses the prospects of developing bilateral relations.
The En+ Group effectively turned a new page in its corporate history in 2019. Now the group has a unique governance scheme for Russia - without a domineering shareholder and a loyal majority on the board of directors. The board chairman, Lord Gregory Barker, is convinced that the changes adopted in the framework of the plan he devised to get the company removed from the U.S. sanctions list will ultimately do the company and its shareholders good, irrespective of the deal with OFAC. Lord Barker told Interfax in an interview about the work of the new En+ board, dividends and long-term strategy.
Ambassador of the United Kingdom to Russia Laurie Bristow, who is leaving his post, has given an exclusive interview to Interfax in which he speaks about prospects of relations with Russia, arms control, the situation in Syria and surrounding Iran, as well as other topical problems on the international agenda.
