Liquor outlets in Ohio, Manitoba, and Newfoundland, according to foreign updates tracked by Pulse, are removing Russian spirits from their shelves.
The Liquor Control Board of Ontario, Canada’s most populous province, has also ordered all local businesses to remove all Russian items.
Stoli Vodka, Russian Standard Original Vodka, Beluga Noble Russian Vodka, Karkov Vodka, and Zyr Vodka will be removed from almost 700 retailers across the province.
