During a recent police raid on Moscow “South Port” auto market a batch of more than 12 tons of different China made enamel paints, polishes, sealants and other products labeled with “ABRO” trademark was detected in a hangar owned by a local entrepreneur. When compared against genuine samples in presence of trademark owner representative, these goods were found counterfeit and seized. The police had to deploy seven trucks to remove them completely.

It is supposed that these inferior quality products were imported from China and sold via a large supply chain in Moscow region and other parts of Russia. Charges are now being brought on the base of article 180 of the Criminal Code “Illegal Use of a Trademark”, while a search for other counterfeit cosmetics goes on.
