BelTA reported earlier that in the spring of 2019 Russia's food quality watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor introduced temporary restrictions on the import of bone-in beef and cattle from countries that do not have an official spongiform encephalopathy status of the World Organization for Animal Health, including Belarus.

In 2018, when the restrictions where not yet in place, bone-in beef supplies accounted for around 90% of Belarus' total beef export to Russia.
