Russian Police Shut Down Counterfiet Chinese Sneaker Sweatshop

Chinese-detained-Russia

 

According to the Moscow Times

Russian officers have detained dozens of illegal workers from China working at a sewing shop in the Russian Ural Mountains, that some reports have linked to the local leader of the ruling United Russia party.

Police and officers from the federal security and migration services rounded up 46 Chinese citizens laboring at an “underground workshop” in Nizhny Tagil, an industrial city just east of the Urals, where they had been producing counterfeit brand-name sneakers…

The migrants lived on the factory’s premises, cooked their meals on electric stoves installed in a men’s locker room and slept in a “so-called dormitory” with four to eight people to a room, the statement said.
