The seized goods included pieces of underwear, clothes and sportswear, footwear, handbags, medicines, mobile phones and accessories, the Customs Department said on Tuesday.

The products mostly came from China, Singapore, India, the United Arab Emirates, and, recently, from Ukraine. The majority of them were bought online by individuals and shipped to Lithuania as small shipments by post or delivery services.

The majority of the counterfeit goods seized by Lithuanian customs officers are replicas of Adidas, Chanel, Gucci, Nike, Nokia, Prada, Puma, Burberry, Louis Vuitton and other brands.
