These animals leave the Russian Federation under the following conditions:

  1. sport horses should be prepared in accordance with the EC veterinary requirements (vaccination, laboratory tests);
  2. it is not necessary to put sport horses in quarantine before they leave the territory of the Russian Federation for participation in sport events, except for cases when putting sport horses in quarantine is one of the conditions for import into the importing country.

These animals enter the Russian Federation from the EC for sporting events under the following conditions:

  1. it is not necessary to put sport horses in quarantine in the exporting country before they enter the Russian Federation. Before they leave horses should be examined by a veterinarian of the State Veterinary Service of the exporting country. Only clinically healthy animals may be allowed to enter the Russian Federation;
  2. they should be accompanied with a veterinary certificate issued by the State Veterinary Service of the exporting country containing information about diagnostic tests carried out in a state veterinary laboratory by methods accepted in the exporting country for glanders, dourine, infectious anaemia, and information about vaccination against equine influenza during the last 6 months;
  3. after the sport events are finished, horses leave the Russian Federation according to the veterinary certificates that accompanied them when they entered the Russian Federation, unless otherwise provided for by the exporting-country legislation.
