Ukrpatent receives letters of support from patent offices of different countries. A letter from the National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia (Sakpatenti).
Dear Mr. Kudin,
On behalf of The National Intellectual Property Center of Georgia - “Sakpatenti” I would like to express solidarity with Ukraine. We strongly condemn an act of aggression on the part of Russian Federation.
We are outraged by the ongoing military actions and send wholehearted thoughts of Sakpatenti to Ukrpatent colleagues and fellow Ukrainians at these terrible and frightening time. Please, accept our condolences to the families of victims and a swift recovery to those injured. Russia’s actions are an immediate danger to those living in Ukraine, but also pose a real threat to democracy throughout the world. Please be informed that over the years our office is not engaging in any activity or communication with Russian IP delegation or representatives.
I also would like to inform you that Sakpatenti will be organizing aid efforts and our staff will be given opportunity to provide voluntary contributions to Georgian Government aid campaigns for Ukraine.
Together with my colleagues, I want to support and encourage you as one of the important state institutions defending and safeguarding intellectual property that is a catalyst of progress and innovation in each country and worldwide.
We hope to have peace in the region, as it is the only solid ground for the existence and sustainable development, innovation and prosperity within the EU neighbourhood and in Europe as a whole.
