Actually if you look at the label, Stoli sold in the US and made and distributed from Latvia. Just sayin.

If you really want to send a message to Putin's Russia, people need to send messages of anger to the sponsors of the 2014 olympic games, like Coca-Cola, Panasonic, Samsung, Procter & Gamble, and Visa. As well as having all world visitors at the events wear supporting colors like a rainbow ribbon or hat or other atire. Putin wants the olympics to make Russia, and him...mostly him...look good to the the rest of the world. If the world start to unify against these draconian laws publicly at an event everyone on earth will be watching, then Russia(Putin) will get the message loud and clear and hopefully repeal these laws.

Russia can do whatever Russia wants. They certainly don't give a dang whether you drink their vodka.

About as silly and grown-up as boycotting 'French' Fries ... and renaming them "freedom fries." Srsly, the stuff comes from tiny Latvia and has nothing to do with the Russian government. Having a cheesy boycott on a product rarely, rarely works here in America, much less on a foreign government. If you have a problem with the Russian Government and want to do something *real* instead of sappy-happy feel-good do-nothing things like boycotts and impotent petitions, take the time to write an actual letter to the Russian Government!
