Ukrainian Authorities Halt Production of Counterfeit Clothing
The Ukrainian police authorities have recently shut down counterfeit clothing production established in several clandestine workshops in the city of Odessa and the Odessa region in southern Ukraine.
During the raids, the police seized counterfeit clothing infringing numerous well-known brands, manufacturing equipment, textiles, labels, packaging material, computers, electronic data storage devices, cash and records of financial transactions related to this illegal business activity which was led by eight foreign citizens.
The counterfeit goods were sold at the local outdoor market and online, with orders being delivered throughout Ukraine and abroad through postal services and bus transportation.
