Kalashnikov Corporation will litigate the use of the world-famous Kalashnikov name, says the official information the court published on its website.
Open sources say the company M.T.Kalashnikov was registered December 10, 1999, in Izhevsk by weapons designer Mikhail Kalashnikov and his closest relatives.
Press service of the Kalashnikov Corporation told ITAR-TASS in the meantime its executives were not ready to comment on the situation right away.
Earlier reports said that Mikhail Kalashnikov gave his personal support to the idea of merging two biggest weaponry manufacturers located in Izhevsk, the Izhmash and Izhmekh factories, into a corporation that would bear his name.
“This is great honor for me because my private name does not belong to me as a designer anymore and it has long transformed into a nationwide asset, an asset belonging to all the Russians,” Kalashnikov said then.
“I’ll be glad if my surname will help boost Russia’s exporting potential and will consolidate its economy and defense capability,” he wrote in his address.
“This brand is a bold testimony to the reliability, efficiency and high consumer reputation of the Russian weapons on the external market, since they outperform the Western analogues in many respects,” Kalashnikov said.
Kalashnikov Corporation was registered officially in August 2013. Mikhail T. Kalashnikov died December 23, 2013 aged 94 years old.
