In connection with continuously increasing volume of counterfeit products on the retail markets of the EAEU countries, we created a unique project - KONTRAFAKT. The web site is aimed at developing a bilateral dialogue between consumers and manufacturers. Information from the manufacturers helps consumers to distinguish genuine products from falsifications, and consumers have the ability to inform the manufacturers on products that they believe to be counterfeit.
