BREAKING: Move to boycott Russian vodka goes global amid Ukraine war backlash

By 03/01/2022 11:27 AMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

The call to boycott Russian-made vodka as a form of protest for the move of Russia to invade has become a global movement.

Sources said the governors of at least three US states – New Hampshire, Ohio, and Utah – have taken action to limit or entirely ban the sale of Russian vodka.

According to reports, a number of companies across various industries have distanced themselves from Russian operations – or cut ties entirely – in response to the conflict.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine ordered the state’s commerce department to block the purchase and sale of Russian Standard vodka – identified by the governor’s office as “the only overseas, Russian-owned vodka distillery with vodka sold in Ohio.”

It was learned that the Russian-made vodka is sold under the Green Mark Vodka and Russian Standard Vodka brands.

DeWine’s office estimated there were approximately 6,400 bottles of Russian Standard vodka were pulled from shelves in Ohio.

Aside from the US, the boycott of Russian-made vodka is also done in Finland, Lithuania, and Denmark

Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Simonyte said the boycott might not cause big damage to Russia but it sends a strong statement that their country does not fund people who start a war.

“Our boycott won’t cause big damages for the Putin’s businessmen but it’s a matter of principle — our people don’t fund those, who finance the war,” Simonyte said.
