During the Soviet times the "Veresk"1 Company (or Cooperative) was the only pipe manufacture in USSR. They used to manufacture pipes in cherry, pear, peach, apricot and other fruit woods. In the early 1990's with the political changes, the corporate focused on briar pipes importing burls from Toscany (IT). But the production of pipes made from fruit tree varieties is still going on (2012).
The Golden Gate pipe factory in Kiev was the place Konstantin Shekita made his first steps in pipemaking.
