The path to peace in the war between Russia and Ukraine is getting longer, sanctions are being imposed, diplomacy is changing, now the message has gone to Russia. The United States has announced a number of diplomatic and economic sanctions against Russia in protest of Russia’s military action in Ukraine. It also contains Russian vodka, a popular beverage in the US and which is why Russia is making huge profits! But catastrophic casualties and human suffering are in front of the eyes, so another drink will work, but not vodka!
The latest addition to the ban is showing effect. The response came immediately after the US and Canada banned the sale of Russian wine, a drink popular with liquor lovers in liquor stores and bars in both countries. According to US Distilled Spirit Council data in the first six months, the only spirits listed in the report as Russian imports are vodka, which is disappearing. The connection between Russia and vodka is profound.
Thus vodka is now made in many countries, control over vodka is also of special importance to Russia, vodka has been known as Russian vodka since its inception, vodka has always been a drink of prestige for Russia! The most popular vodka brands in the country and in the world are Smirnoff, Sirok, Titoz, Absolute, Sweedka, Gray Goose! New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu said Russian brands and Russian-made liquor could no longer be sold there. Following this, Ohio also announced a boycott of Russian alcohol. All bottles of vodka were thrown out of the shelf in symbolic protest. Newfoundland has also ordered the removal of bottles of Russian vodka from the shelves of liquor stores. Canada has taken the same path. Bottles of Russian vodka have been removed from 70 liquor stores in Ontario.
Russian vodka addiction is high in Canada, with Canada importing about 300 million Russian vodkas last year. Russian vodka is the most popular wine among Canadian drinkers, after whiskey and statescan. For now, Canadians will be deprived of the love of vodka, even though they have been shaken by the war. The Ontario government has instructed the Liquor Control Board of Ontario, one of the world’s largest liquor retailers, to remove Russian vodka wholesale, Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvi said. Ontario joins. Ontario is Canada’s most populous province, accounting for about 40% of the country’s population. Along with 10 other Russian products they have a look.
Statistics Canada data show that provincial liquor sellers import 700 million Canadian dollars worth of vodka from Russia annually. Earlier, in 2006, when the United States and France clashed over Iraq, French fries were renamed “Freedom Fries” on menu cards in American restaurants. This is an example of how war should be fought. The way to go to war to stop the war or to stop the genocide is not in anyone’s interest at all. The vodka boycott is currently being welcomed in one Western country after another, with pictures of bottles being thrown away and people enthusiastically embracing it.
Ohio is the only foreign distillery with Russian-owned vodka. Russian standard vodka is sold under the brand names Green Mark Vodka and Russian Standard Vodka. About 7,000 bottles of vodka, made by Russian standards, were in stock until the fourth day of the war. Liquor agencies and retailers were ordered not to sell vodka with immediate effect. There is no doubt that the way Russian vodka has been excommunicated internationally will prove to be a crushing resistance for Russia! This alchemy only works if people want to express their anger peacefully during wartime, without bloodshed a power realizes that more damage can be done by hitting a vodka than can shoot!
