Kazakh Officials Shut Down Production of Fake Spirits
On June 3, 2021, the Kazakh Economic Investigations Department officials put an end to the production of counterfeit vodka and cognac established in two workshops in the city of Petropavlovsk in northern Kazakhstan.
During the raids, the officials detained more than 40,000 liters of counterfeit spirits, estimated to be worth approximately EUR 223,000 (USD 267,000). The spirits were produced in workshops with unsanitary conditions, using tap water and artificial flavors and dyes, and were packaged in five-liter plastic containers.
