HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - Total Wine & More has followed Virginia ABC's lead and will no longer sell Russian sourced products.

On Monday, Total Wine & More announced on their Facebook and Twitter page that shelves may look bare as they have removed all Russian-made products from their shelves. The company says this decision is in support of the Ukrainian people.

Virginia ABC stores announced Sunday that they will remove seven Russian-sourced vodka brands from their shelves following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

According to a tweet from ABC, the decision was made after Gov. Glenn Youngkin called for "decisive action" in support of Ukraine.

Both companies have decided to stop selling Russian-made products as tensions rise between the countries.
