Russia will soon start producing RuCola instead of Coca-Cola. Napitki iz Chernogolovki - Aqualife has already applied for registration with Rospatent, the national portal Adyrna reports.
Not only carbonated drinks under the RuCoLa brand, but also juices and lemonades, as well as kefir and food can be produced and sold.
Chernogolovka already produces "Baikal", a drink made in the USSR as an analogue of Coca-Cola and Pepsi, experts say.
The city's news agency reported that Coca-Cola had filed a lawsuit to prevent RuCoLa from registering.
Last year, Coca-Cola sued Chernogolovka for its Fantola brand. The American corporation believed that the brand is similar to its drink "Fanta". The court rejected the claim.
In early March, Coca-Cola announced that it would cease operations in Russia. The Moscow headquarters then explained that the drinks would continue to be sold, only to be a statement to stop investing in marketing and new projects.
