Woke Americans Pull 1.2% of Russian Vodka Imported from Shelves and Bars to Stop Putin (This Isn’t Satire)

That’s right, the woke crowd is yet again thinking they are making a difference and stopping Vlad the Impaler Putin himself by boycotting Russian vodka. You can’t make up this level off stupid, it only happens in America.

That’s right, 1.2% of vodka on American shelves comes from Russia, so the woke brigade of liberals and conservatives have taken to social media to let you know they won’t allow it on their shelves or in their bars any longer. That should totally stop the Russians in their tracks, just like those pesky sanctions did.

Not to be outdone, Canada who’s still arresting their own citizens for protesting has joined the United States on the Russian vodka ban. We have no clue how much vodka Canada gets from Russia, and for the sake of this article we didn’t research it because we’ve already cared too much about this nonsensical woke story.

In Ontario, Canada, Finance Minister Peter Bethlenfalvy directed the provincial Liquor Control Board to have stores remove Russian vodka and other alcoholic products, according to the Canadian Press. 

“Ontario joins Canada’s allies in condemning the Russian government’s act of aggression against the Ukrainian people and we strongly support the federal government’s efforts to sanction the Russian government,” Bethlenfalvy said. “We will continue to be there for the Ukrainian people during this extremely difficult time.”

The Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation removed Russian products from its shelves and website because of the “terrible events taking place.” 

In the U.S., the Jacob Liquor Exchange in Wichita, Kansas, decided to remove its more than 100 bottles of Russian vodka from the shelves and poured some of it on the ground. 

“I think the whole world knows by now that Russia’s at war with Ukraine for no apparent reason,” Jamie Stratton, wine director and partner of the store, told KSNW-TV in Wichita. “I guess this is our sanction … and this may be small, but every small thing makes a difference.”

That’ll stop the Rooskies… Pouring out Vodka you’ve already paid for in a nation that already has empty shelves in most places because of supply chain and Covid mandates. Good Call!

In Oregon, the owner of a bar in Bend filmed himself pouring out all of his Russian vodka, according to FOX 12 of Portland. 

“Russia is acting as though it’s 1939 and going into Europe with a full force that they have in the Ukraine,” Bill McCormick, owner of Pine Tavern, told the station. “I am so concerned about it metastasizing into other countries.”

“Biden ‘basically laid out the red carpet’ for Putin to invade Ukraine”

Biden in Delaware as Putin raises nuclear alert status

President Biden remains at his private home in Delaware as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues to escalate.

Russian President Vladimir Putin raised the alert status for his nuclear forces to “special regime of combat duty” as Russia and Ukraine battle for the fourth day

Putin ordered the Russian defense minister and the chief of the military’s General Staff to put the nuclear deterrent forces in a “special regime of combat duty.” The move signals tensions could boil over into a nuclear war. 

At the same time, Biden remains at his private residence in Delaware and media communications with the commander-in-chief have slowed to a crawl.

BIDEN SAYS ‘NO-ONE EXPECTED SANCTIONS TO PREVENT ANYTHING FROM HAPPENING,’ DESPITE PRIOR WHITE HOUSE CLAIMS

Putin warned last week that countries who interfere with his invasion of Ukraine will face “consequences you have never seen.”

He is right now threatening a nuclear escalation,” said former DIA intelligence officer Rebekah Koffler. “This a veiled threat – or maybe such a veiled threat – he just met with his chief of general staff and minister of defense. He is escalating the conflict into the nuclear domain in order to de-escalate – that is topple Kyiv’s regime quickly.”

Turkey has declared that Russia’s actions in Ukraine constitute a war and will act accordingly, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Sunday.

Pentagon press secretary John Kirby spoke to reporters Friday on the U.S. military’s plans to aid Ukraine as Russian forces continue to advance through the country.

One reporter asked Kirby if U.S. intelligence suggests Russian President Vladimir Putin would stop his advancement with Ukraine. Some European countries are anxious that the Russian president’s campaign could continue past the borders of the war-torn country. 

“It is not entirely clear if Mr. Putin has designs beyond the Ukraine,” Kirby said. “And it’s because that’s not perfectly clear that we continue to look for ways to bolster our NATO capabilities and to reassure our allies. I mean, one of the reasons we’re doing this is because we want to make it clear to him that we will defend every inch of NATO territory.”

During an interview with Fox News Digital at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Sen. Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn. said Putin will only respond to “people that show a spine” and stand up to the authoritarian leader, which the U.S. is unfortunately not doing at the moment under Biden’s leadership, he said.

“I think the thing that will be most potent to stopping the advance right now will be people that show a spine, [such as] people like [Ukrainian] President Zelenskyy is [doing]. The folks that show resolve,” Hagerty said. “We’re going to [have to] increase the cost to Putin of moving against Kyiv and against the entirety of Ukraine.”

Event: Ukraine Land Border Crossing Options February 27, 2022

By U.S. Embassy Kyiv | 27 February, 2022 | Topics: Alert, Events, News

February 27, 2022 at 9:54PM

The security situation throughout Ukraine continues to be unpredictable, with active fighting inside many cities and other locations, and conditions may deteriorate as military attacks by Russia continue in various parts of the country without any warning.

The U.S. Embassy urges U.S citizens in Ukraine to depart now using privately available transportation options if it is safe to do so. Careful consideration should be made to routes and the risks of travel because Ukraine’s roads are in many cases crowded, exposed to combat operations, and infrastructure such as bridges in some locations has been destroyed. Sheltering in place may remain the best option for some.

U.S. citizens wishing to depart Ukraine by land have several options. We understand that most border crossings into Poland and all main crossing points into Moldova are severely backed up and some are experiencing extremely long wait times (well over 30 hours in some cases). We recommend that, if possible, U.S. citizens consider redirecting to border crossings with Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia, which are currently experiencing lower wait times to cross.

Note that conditions at each border can change very quickly and wait times can increase at any time without warning. Be prepared to wait for many hours to cross:

  • Have extra batteries and power banks for your mobile phones.
  • Bring enough food and water for at least two days.
  • Stock up on diapers and baby food, if applicable.
  • Bring blankets, sleeping bags, warm clothes.
  • Ensure enough pet food if you are with your pet.
  • Bring hard copies of important documents (birth certificates, passports [even if expired], any other identification) and don’t rely on cell phones and computer batteries.
  • Book accommodations prior to arrival, as many hotels near the borders are already booked.

Local authorities in Romania, Poland, and Moldova have reception centers immediately beyond most border crossings, where you can find food, temporary lodging, clothes, and transportation to the next bigger town.

Note that Poland has waived any COVID-related requirements to show vaccination cards and/or PCR tests.

U.S. citizens seeking emergency assistance and those who decide to remain in Ukraine should complete this online form and the State Department will respond. The U.S. government will not be able to evacuate U.S. citizens from Ukraine. Please review what the U.S. government can and cannot do to assist you in a crisis overseas. U.S. citizens may seek consular services, including requests for repatriation loans, passport, and visa services, at U.S. embassies and consulates in neighboring countries.

Additional Actions to Take:

  • Visit the Embassy’s webpage to view the most recent safety and security alerts for U.S. citizens.
  • Regularly monitor local and international news and social media news channels.
  • Ensure travel documents are valid and easily accessible.
  • Review your personal security plans and always have a contingency plan in place that does not rely on U.S. government assistance.
  • Get a COVID vaccine to facilitate your travel.
  • Regularly monitor the State Department’s website for current Travel Advisories . Read the Country Specific Information for Ukraine. For additional information, refer to the “Traveler’s Checklist” on the State Department’s website.
