Using the “Artek” brand for any children’s camp in the annexed Crimea the Russian Federation is committing theft of intellectual property of Ukraine. This was stated by Deputy Director-General of the State Enterprise “Artek” Viktor Knysh.
“The International Center Artek” and its brand belong to a State enterprise of Ukraine. Nothing has changed, the State enterprise exists. Moreover, the brand has passed the international registration, and today it belongs to Ukraine,” said Knysh.
After the Russian annexation of Crimea the State children’s camp “Artek” continues its work in the Kyiv region.
