12,693 crimes related to counterfeiting were registered in Russia in the first 11 months of 2001.

Criminal charges were filed against 1,132 people. The damage caused to the state exceeded 358 million rubles (about $11.9 million), of which the state has been compensated for over 326 million rubles (about $10.8 million).
