Ukrainian police officials recently seized 130 tracksuits, 150 rolls of fabric as well as sewing equipment while searching a workshop in the port city of Odessa in southern Ukraine, where illegal immigrants produced clothes infringing several well-known trademarks, including Adidas® and Nike®.

On another occasion, on September 13, 2018, officials from the Police, State Border Guard Service and Office of the Prosecutor General seized various clothing items and bottles of perfume while inspecting a container arriving in Odessa from Turkey. While the customs declaration claimed the container was transporting wrapping foil, the officials discovered and seized more than 50,000 bottles of perfume believed to infringe numerous well-known trademarks, including Chanel®, Dior®, Givenchy®, Kenzo®, Paco Rabanne® and DKNY®, as well as 70 packages of clothes believed to infringe Puma®, Nike®, Reebok® and other trademarks.
