According to Rosbalt, Onishchenko underlined the possibility of intentional transfer of the agent of disease to the Russian territory. "I do not rule out the possibility of an economic subversion. There are grounds to suppose that the disease has got here through Poti. It might have been done not without some malicious intent", - head of Russian Agency for Health and Consumer Rights stated.
He also underlined that the African swine fever is likely to affect the economical sphere, for it does not affect people.
Let us remind you that there had been a mass loss of swine in the territories of South and North Ossetia adjoining Georgia, which was allegedly caused by African fever. South-Ossetian Agricultural Administration reported the loss of over 200 heads.
The animals displayed signs typical of the African swine fever, which were also found on the animals in Georgia.
