The director of ‘Khlibny Dar Russia’ Sergy Velychko tries to gain the right of the Ukrainian patriotic sport event Vyshyvanka Run by the raiding method. His confident applied for registration of the trade mark in the care of his name. The famous Ukrainian Olympian and the best marathon runner of Europe 2007 Oleksandr Kuzin wrote this at the open appeal to the owner of the Bayadera Spirits Company Svyatoslav Nechytailo. He published it at Facebook as Ukrainian News reported.
Kuzin reminded that he holds Vyshyvanka Run since 2014. According to the sportsman, the subordinate of Svyatoslav Nechytailo, Sergy Velychko prevents from holding the event.
‘This person wants to appropriate the event and officially register the rights of Vyshyvanka Run in the care of his girlfriend Olga Tretyakova. He is interested in the event that unites the Ukrainians all over the world despite the fact that the center of his vital interests is in Russia. Velychko cynically threatens me and it is recorded. I am not a businessman. I dedicated my whole life to the sport and defense of the honor of our country at the international competitions. So I hardly understand how it is possible. I think that it is disgusting and immoral’, he wrote.
The fourth Vyshyvanka Run should take place at Rusanivska water-front on August 24.
The organizers of the event found out the fact of plagiarism from one of the run organizations of Kyiv. The representatives of this organization also prepare for the run and it will take place on the same day but in Pyrogiv.
The criminal investigation is opened against the organizers of the alternative run. Kuzin thinks that the intervention of Nechytailo can defuse the conflict.
