Russia. Omikron, the owner of the clinic network, has filed a lawsuit against WHO

Russian entrepreneur Alexander Padar, owner of a network of ophthalmic clinics in Siberia called Omikron, has filed a lawsuit against the World Health Organization. A businessman wants WHO not to use the name omicron for the new COVID-19 variant.

We deal with health and we do not want the “omicron” to be associated with harm to human health. Our task is to prohibit the use of the word “omicron” in the context of the coronavirus variant

Padar, the owner of the Russian Omikron, told the daily Kommersant.

WHO sued by the Omikron clinic network. It is about damaging the company’s reputation

The suit was filed with an arbitration court in the Moscow region. The WHO office in Moscow is the defendant. The businessman assured that he is the owner of the Omikron trademark. In the lawsuit, he asked the court to prohibit the WHO from using the name in the context of the coronavirus outbreak because it “damages the company’s reputation”. He also indicated that he spent a lot of money on advertising to make the name of his clinics recognizable.
