Bars pour away all Russian Vodka in show of solidarity with Ukraine

Hundreds of bars across the U.S and Canada are removing Russian vodka and other Russian-made alcoholic beverages from their shelves in protest of the invasion of Ukraine.

After weeks of warnings from Western leaders, Russia unleashed a three-pronged assault of Ukraine from the north, east and south on Thursday.

Liquor stores in the provinces of Manitoba and Newfoundland said they were removing Russian spirits, while Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, also directed the Liquor Control Board Of Ontario to withdraw all Russian products.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., videos circulated on social media of bars and liquor stores emptying their Russian vodka and removing bottles from their shelves in a show of solidarity with Ukraine.
