On January 24th, African swine fever (ASF) hit Lithuania. This means  that a ban may be placed on the supply of pork from Lithuania, and pork supply from all EU countries may be suspended.

EU supplies make up about 60% of pork imports in Russia. If pork supplies from the EU are  completely suspended, meat prices will increase by 10%-15% in Russia and the demand for pork meat from Belarus will go up.

And on January 27th, Rosselkhoznadzor (the Russian Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance) announced that temporarily imposed limitations on the supply of pork products from Mogilev enterprises had been lifted.

Apparently, the Belarusian authorities aspire that participants in street protests would reduce in number and that the low interest of the population to socio-political agenda before the local election campaign would retain.
