For the purpose of illegal enrichment, a group of people purchased raw materials and equipment, set up equipment that ensured a full cycle of mass production of counterfeit products.
The alcoholic mixture was poured into tetrapacks and plastic containers under the guise of well-known brands. A surrogate dangerous to human life and health was sold in large batches to trusted customers.
