Carlsberg was the owner of Baltika, but wanted to get rid of this asset after the start of the Russian military invasion. But before he could do so, Moscow took control of the company last July by order of Russian President Vladimir Putin. In this way, she confiscated Carlsberg’s share. The head of the Danish brewery, Jacob Aarup-Andersen, called it theft at the time.

“There is no getting around the fact that they stole our activities in Russia,” he said. “We’re not going to help them try to make it look legitimate,” he added.

The suit for compensation was filed at the St. Petersburg court. Court documents, however, do not specify what damages the demand for compensation refers to, Reuters wrote. She pointed out that previous court proceedings involving Baltika and Carlsberg had been held in private due to the presence of documents containing trade secrets.

“We do not comment on specific court cases,” Carslberg said. “As we have previously announced, we continue to take all possible steps to protect our employees, assets and activities in connection with Baltica,” she added. Baltika refused to comment on the claim for compensation, writes Reuters.

Carlsberg is the third largest beer producer in the world. It also operates in the Czech Republic, where in 2014 it bought a fifty-one percent stake in the Žateck Brewery.

The managers of the Russian brewery Baltika were arrested. The authorities suspect them of helping Carlsberg
