Ukrainian customs officials in the port city of Odessa in southern Ukraine recently seized a shipment of aerosol cans infringing the WD-40® trademark. The counterfeits were discovered in a container with consumer goods arriving from China.

On another occasion, Ukrainian police officials seized more than 300 tons of counterfeit olive oil packed into metal containers bearing well-known trademarks. The fake oil was produced in a workshop in the capital of Kyiv by mixing olive and sunflower oil and sold through a wholesale and retail network all over Ukraine.
