Carlsberg's unit in Kazakhstan appeals Russian court’s Baltika ban – Reuters

Carlsberg’s operation in Kazakhstan has filed an appeal with a Russian court to overturn a ban on the brewer selling Baltika brands in the region, according to reports by Reuters. Moscow took control of Carlsberg's stake in Baltika, Russia's largest brewer, in July last year and placed it under "temporary management,” prompting Carlsberg CEO Jacob Aarup-Andersen to say its business had been “stolen”. On 24 January this year, a court in St Petersburg, Russia, revoked intellectual property rights for Carlsberg to use Baltika brands in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Mongolia and Turkmenistan. Carlsberg Kazakhstan appealed against the court's ruling on Friday (1 March,) court documents showed. "We are continuing to take all possible actions, including legal, to protect our employees, assets and operations in response to the presidential decree from 2023," a spokesperson for the company told Reuters.
