Liquor stores across the United States and Canada have been throwing out their Russian vodka stocks in a show of protest against President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine since Thursday.

Several videos of liquor store and bar owners emptying out their bottles and taking stocks off the shelves were shared on social media.


This video is from Ohio and was originally shared on TikTok.


One clip, shared by Fox News, shows an elderly man emptying out two bottles of vodka.
Peter Bethlenfalvy, the finance minister of Canada’s Ontario, directed the Liquor Control Board to have the province’s stores remove Russian vodka and other alcoholic beverages from the country, the Chronicle Journal reported.
